Verizon Wireless CEO Denny Strigl has been called up to parent Verizon Communications to be the company's new President and COO. He will begin the new post on January 1, at which time VZW COO Lowell McAdam will take over Strigl's role. Strigl will remain on Verizon Wireless Board of Directors. VZW is also losing its chief of marketing, John Stratton, as he has been called up to serve at Verizon Communications as well. McAdam has not issued any statement on where he intends to steer Verizon Wireless, nor have analysts speculated as to how he might change the carrier's course, if at all.

New UI?

Maybe he will take those damn UI's off their phones.... yeah right!
Don't hold your breath. The UI sends out a special mind altering signal. So that the only thing you can say is " Its the most reliable network!" Riiiiigghhhttt!

how he might change the carrier's course, if at all.

Continue charging outrageous rates for data, more then double what Sprint charges.
Good job Verizon, you will never get a penny of my money.
this is the reason there are carrier wars on this site... i've been part of them... this is just stating what is going on... no reason to start bashing the other company...

Changing the carrier's course?

Why do anything significant in that regard?
