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.
