If you don’t know him from anywhere else, careful readers will know Paul Weirtz from his seat on the MN Broadband Task Force. Wisconsin Business reports that we’re going to have to share him – and congrats to Paul…
AT&T* announced today that Paul Weirtz has been named state president of AT&T Wisconsin.
As president of AT&T Wisconsin, Weirtz will lead all external, government and community affairs efforts for AT&T in the state. Weirtz succeeds Scott VanderSanden, who retired in December after nearly 33 years with the company.
“I am honored to lead AT&T external affairs in the great State of Wisconsin,” said Weirtz. “AT&T has a long history of investing in Wisconsin, and I’m excited to work closely with our team to continue those investments, from expanding our networks to giving back to our local communities.”
Weirtz has more than 22 years with AT&T. In 2013, he was named president of AT&T Minnesota. He has served on the Minnesota Governor’s Broadband Task Force since 2015 and played a key role in the passage of small cell legislation in the state in 2017. He has also held positions in local external affairs and government relations for the company.
As current state president for Minnesota, Weirtz will lead legislative and community affairs operations for both Wisconsin and Minnesota, working closely with legislators, business leaders and other policymakers.
