AT&T has named Alexandra Verdiales regional vice president of external and legislative affairs for AT&T USVI and Puerto Rico.
Verdiales will replace Ray Flores, who announced his retirement from AT&T after 48 years of service. She will be responsible for representing AT&T with local government in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands, and will assist with new technology deployment and infrastructure investment by collaborating with community leaders, legislators and business leaders, the company said.
“I’m pleased to welcome Alexandra to our team,” said Joe York, president of AT&T Florida, Puerto Rico and USVI. “She brings tremendous talent to the table, which coupled with her vast knowledge of the region, makes her a great addition to our team.”
Prior to joining AT&T, Verdiales was in-house counsel for Liberty Cablevision of Puerto Rico. She also served as chief legal officer to the Development of Childhood Administration within the Puerto Rico Department of Family Affairs.
A Puerto Rico native, Alexandra earned her bachelor’s degree, with honors, from Georgetown University and her juris doctor degree, with honors, from the University of Puerto Rico School of Law.
“I am excited about this opportunity, which comes at a time when AT&T emerges as a leader in new and exciting areas like TV and entertainment, while it continues to drive technological advances in wireless and other services,” Verdiales said. “My commitment is to work with the local government and their leadership team as they promote a business environment that encourages innovation and investment in Puerto Rico and build strong ties with our community.”
