Happy Monday, V Team! On today’s edition of Up To Speed live, host Andy Choi recapped our residency week in Dallas, T.X., and all the great work being done by the V Team in the Lone Star State.

A successful town hall

Our Chairman and CEO Hans Vestberg, alongside the entire Verizon Leadership Committee, held an in-person town hall for the first time in several years. It took place at our beautiful Irving office and the thoughtful questions led to some great discussions around important topics.

A #GoFightWin kind of day

It was announced today that, after 35 years as a member of our V Team Family, Tami Erwin, CEO of Verizon Business Group will be leaving the company at the end of the year. Andy took a moment to reflect on the positive impact that Tami has had on so many parts of the business. We wish her the very best in her future endeavors.

A visit to our Hidden Ridge Office

Andy visited our colleagues at the Hidden Ridge office and learned why they love being part of the V Team, and Verizon Consumer Group COO Krista Bourne highlighted the energetic atmosphere at the campus.

A visit to our Grapevine retail store

We met the V team at our Grapevine newest multi-store. We heard from Consumer District Manager Leo Williams, Indirect Account Manager Steffanie Frybarger, and Solutions Specialists Donovan Johnson and Giselle Valles. They all shared what they feel makes their team so special and why they love working together to serve our customers.
