Chairman’s Letter to Shareowners
Verizon has spent the better part of the last decade transforming our company to grow and compete in the digital era. Our goal is simple: to be the best company in the communications sector, period.
To that end, we have gained scale in the broadband, global IP and mobile technologies required for us to become a leading network company. We have also come together around a single brand, common values and a results-driven culture. While there is always more to do, we have come through an important phase in our strategic transformation. We now have a superior set of assets in place, based on quality networks and direct relationships with millions of customers, and we have developed a capable and experienced management team. This business model is delivering improved operational performance and creating higher returns for shareowners. And with this solid foundation, Verizon is well-positioned to meet future market demands for mobility, bandwidth and global connectivity.
