Chairman's letter

Dear Shareholders,

Since becoming Verizon’s chief executive officer in August, one of my top priorities has been to meet with our customers, our employees and with you – our investors.

What I heard was inspiring. Over and over, people expressed a deep pride in what Verizon stands for, and in what we are achieving in the world.
