Chairman’s Letter

Dear Shareholder,
One quality that defines a great company is how it responds to change.

Most companies embrace change with a certain degree of reluctance. That’s never been the Verizon way. Throughout our history, we have been drivers of change – while also remaining true to our corporate mission, strategic vision and core values.
