Marni Walden Plans to Leave Verizon
October 6, 2017
Marni Walden, Verizon executive vice president and president of Global
Media, plans to leave the company in February 2018.
December 31, 2017, Walden will move into a strategic advisor role and
continue to report to Verizon Chairman and CEO Lowell McAdam until her
departure. Following that date, Tim Armstrong, CEO of Oath, who will
continue to be responsible for leading Oath, will report directly to
McAdam. The Telematics organization will report to John Stratton,
executive vice president and president of Global Operations.
“Marni helped build our wireless business, starting as a sales
representative in a store, and grew into an inspirational leader and
role model for so many at Verizon,” said McAdam. “She has most recently
spearheaded Verizon’s entry into global digital media and telematics and
will leave us in a strong competitive position.”
