AT&T aligns public sector under Kapoor

Kay Kapoor

As of March 20, Kay Kapoor is the head of AT&T's new Global Public Sector segment, which combines the company's state/federal government operations with its education operations.

Kapoor will also continue to oversee the company's new public-private partnership with the U.S. government as the prime contractor on FirstNet, the planned nationwide interoperable wireless broadband network for first responders.

The company announced the realignment on April 3.

AT&T's 2016 Public Sector sales totaled almost $15 billion, according to the company.

The organization provides advanced information and communications technologies to government and education customers across federal, state, local and international public sector markets.

Before taking on the new role, Kapoor led AT&T's $5 billion federal business that includes defense, civilian, public safety and national security customers.

Prior to joining AT&T, she was CEO of Accenture Federal Services, where she led the company's federal business effort. She also worked for 20 years at Lockheed Martin Corporation leading organization units, as well as government relations.

AT&T's website lists Christopher Sambar as senior vice president -- AT&T FirstNet and senior vice president AT&T Business Solutions -- Global Public Sector. Sambar, according to AT&T, is responsible for executing the FirstNet contract and developing a business model to support the nationwide First Responder network.

"This is an important focus area for AT&T," said Kapoor in an April 3 statement. "Our public sector and education customers are a top priority. By bringing all public sector teams together, we can improve the value and partnership we offer to these customers."
