AT&T, Dish & Google CEOs Profiled

Posted by Sam Churchill on

Some terrific corporate profiles of AT&T’s Randall Stephenson, Dish’s Charlie Ergen and Google’s Larry Page are out this week from Forbes, Business Week and Fortune, respectively.

  • Forbes on Randall Stephenson: How AT&T’s Bet On Apple Mobilized The Company. AT&T still lags Verizon on many fronts, but since the iPhone deal Ma Bell moves faster, embraces new technologies and partnerships big and small, and has decided to spend big–really, really big–to stay atop the data deluge.
  • Business Week on Charlie Ergen: For 2012, the website 24/7 Wall St. determined that the worst company to work for in America was the Dish Network, the Englewood Colorado-based company that provides satellite TV to more than 14 million subscribers.
  • Fortune on Larry Page: What’s remarkable about Page is that while he’s been pushing his engineers and executives to pursue big dreams, he has also been running a complex $38 billion business of 53,000 workers with surprising efficacy. When he took over in April 2011, Google’s once-phenomenal innovation engine was showing signs of age, and bureaucracy was beginning to take root. Page quickly reorganized the company to give top executives more responsibility and accountability and to sharpen Google’s focus on a handful of product areas.
