AT&T has brought over a nearly two-decade veteran of its enterprise and commercial businesses to lead the telecommunications company's public sector unit that is undergoing a realignment and other leadership changes.
Zee Hussain has been appointed president of the AT&T Public Sector business to succeed Jason Porter, who will move to a new role within the company. Porter previously led AT&T's FirstNet public safety network business for three years and expanded his role to all of public sector in early 2021.
FirstNet will now reside within the public sector unit and get a new president in nearly two-decade company veteran Jim Bugel, who will report to Hussain. Bugel was part of the leadership team responsible for securing the multibillion-dollar contract to build and operate that public safety network in 2017.
