AT&T moves toward national org structure

AT&T said that it will cut some management jobs as it continues to make over its corporate structure from regionalized to more national in scope. The telco's landline, DSL and video operations will no longer be managed from regional offices as AT&T looks for a more standardized approach across all regions.

It's not a surprising move for a company that can only be described as a national telco since the acquisition of BellSouth, but could AT&T lose a bit of local finesse in the process? The move comes just days after David Scobey, president of AT&T Southeast and a former BellSouth executive, announced his retirement. But, AT&T said the restructuring was unrelated, and also will result in promotions for some former BellSouth managers.
