NEW YORK -- In a move that will even more strongly enable it to provide business and government customers with fully integrated enterprise-class solutions, Verizon today announced the creation of a new global organization that will oversee all business, government and wholesale operations from across the company's wireless and wireline businesses.

John Stratton, previously executive vice president and chief operating officer of Verizon Wireless, has been named president of the new organization, to be called Verizon Enterprise Solutions. The new organization will oversee all of Verizon's solutions for business and government customers, including its portfolio of enterprise mobility, cloud and IT, strategic networking and advanced communications offerings, as well as specialized solutions for key industries such as health care, travel and transportation, retail, utilities and financial services, and IT consulting services.
