President & CEO
At Sprint Nextel, Dan Hesse leads a carrier locked in an ongoing battle with the tech industry. Today, the device has become king and in an effort to recapture some network dominance, Hesse and his team have migrated towards a more open strategy. We'll ask what that means and question Hesse about 4G's ability to deliver upon its promise.
Prior to his appointment as SprintCEO, Hesse was the Chairman and CEO of Embarq Corporation, and also served as the top exec of Terabeam Corporation. Before that, he spent 23 years at AT&T, including as president and CEO of AT&T Wireless Services.
Hesse got masters degrees from both the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in science and in business from Cornell University, as well as an undergraduate degree from the University of Notre Dame.
