Randall Stephenson
Chairman and CEO, AT&T

Randall Stephenson has been Chairman and CEO of AT&T since 2007. Under his leadership, AT&T has transformed itself to align with two major trends: First, that consumers will continue to spend more time viewing premium content where they want, when they want and how they want. And second, that businesses and consumers alike will continue to want more connectivity, bandwidth and mobility.

Under Stephenson, AT&T has committed $550 million since 2008 to its signature philanthropic initiative, AT&T Aspire, which drives innovation in education to promote student success in school and the workplace. He also led AT&T’s breakthrough “It Can Wait” campaign – an education and awareness program to reduce distracted driving. The program has amassed more than 40 million pledges of support. And in 2018 WarnerMedia unveiled an industry-first Diversity and Inclusion Policy for talent in front of and behind the camera.

Stephenson began his career with Southwestern Bell Telephone in 1982 in Oklahoma. He served as the company’s senior executive vice president and chief financial officer from 2001 to 2004, and from 2004 to 2007 he was chief operating officer. He was appointed to AT&T’s board of directors in 2005.
