AT&T on Monday made a few changes to its executive ranks, naming John Stankey as group president and Chief Strategy Officer.

Senior Executive VP Andy Geisse will handle the business sales efforts previously overseen by Stankey, as well as the consumer businesses headed by Ralph de la Vega. De la Vega remains in charge of the company’s wireless business.

Technology chief John Donovan was named senior executive VP of technology and network operations. All four report to CEO Randall Stephenson.

Meanwhile, corporate strategy head Forrest Miller is retiring after three decades with the company.

The moves follow AT&T’s failed bid to acquire T-Mobile USA.
