AT&T restructures its mobility group, promoting execs de la Vega and Lurie

AT&T is giving its Mobility CEO Ralph de la Vega more responsibility and a new title, placing him in charge of a combined mobile and business division, FierceWireless reported on Tuesday. Taking de la Vega’s place as head of mobility will be Glenn Lurie, the AT&T President and rising star who ran AT&T’s emerging devices group, encompassing everything from tablets, Kindles and smart watches to connected cars and Ma Bell’s new Digital Life smart home program. To get an idea of how AT&T’s new Mobility CEO thinks, check out my interview with Lurie on the internet of things from 2012.
