AT&T is revamping its indirect channel programs management team as Brooks McCorcle, who has served as president of AT&T Partner Solutions, gets ready to retire after 30 years with the service provider.
During her tenure leading Partner Solutions, McCorcle was instrumental in transforming the division’s go-to-market strategy and infusing agility and innovation into its indirect distribution channels. She was also one of FierceTelecom’s Women in Wireline honorees in 2015.
McCorcle has held positions in Mergers & Acquisitions and Finance, and executive positions in Consumer Marketing, Customer Care and Sales. Earlier, she led Investor Relations for AT&T.
As part of the new management structure, Zee Hussain will lead AT&T’s indirect channel programs, while Xavier Williams will oversee AT&T Wholesale.
AT&T’s 3 solution provider models—AT&T Partner Exchange, ACC Business and AT&T Alliance Channel—will be led by Zee Hussain, division president, AT&T Partner Solutions.
Hussain will bring his wide-ranging sales experience to the new role. He previously managed solutions-based relationships with third-party solution providers. He will report to Anne Chow, president, National Business, who will help drive AT&T’s indirect channel programs.
Chow plans to expand AT&T’s third-party relationships and develop win-win execution models for these programs.
Xavier Williams has been named, president, AT&T Business Operations and Wholesale Markets. Besides his current responsibilities, he will now also lead AT&T Wholesale, which was previously housed within AT&T Partner Solutions.
AT&T said this “realignment lets us further elevate the experience we bring to our solution providers and wholesale customers.”
The service provider has continued to enhance the capabilities of the AT&T Partner Exchange.
It recently introduced a new set of application programming interface (API) capabilities, Ethernet offer enhancements and self-service support targeting the growing solutions channel community. This will help solution providers check service availability and generate quotes in near real-time for AT&T internet access service.
