AT&T on Monday named Beth Adcock Shiroishi, a 15-year company veteran, as president of AT&T Georgia.
The company said Shiroishi, who will be based in Atlanta, will oversee the company’s efforts to bring more wireless and wired broadband services to Georgia consumers and businesses by working with elected officials, community and business leaders and others.
Shiroishi replaces Sylvia Russell, who announced her retirement last November after more than 20 years with the company.
Most recently, Shiroishi served as vice president of sustainability and philanthropy and as president of the AT&T Foundation. She directed the company’s $565 million investment in electric and alternative fuel vehicles and oversaw investments in programs that help underserved youths complete high school and pursue a post-secondary education or employment. The company has earmarked $350 million for its AT&T Aspire program.
In November, AT&T named Keith Holmes as vice president and general manager for AT&T operations in Georgia and South Carolina. Holmes oversees the company’s sales and retail operations.
