Verizon Wireless Appoints CTO

Verizon Wireless has appointed Anthony Melone as Senior Vice President and Chief Technical Officer (CTO), replacing Dick Lynch, who last month was named chief technology officer of Verizon Communications.

Formerly vice president of the company's network operations, Melone has assumed full responsibility for heading the team that supports the technology, architecture, planning, design, and operation of Verizon Wireless' coast to coast wireless voice and data network. Melone joined Bell Atlantic Mobile's network operations group in 1996, and in 2000 was named staff vice president of network planning and administration when Verizon Wireless was formed.
