Norihiko Minato Appointed Head of AT&T Asia Pacific and Japan

Norihiko (Hiko) Minato has been appointed as the new head of the AT&T Asia Pacific and Japan region. Effective Nov. 1, 2007, the company's 12 Asia Pacific markets and Japan will be combined into one region under the new organization.

Hiko Minato, who was most recently the president of AT&T Japan, will relocate from Tokyo, Japan to Hong Kong and report to John Finnegan, senior vice president of AT&T Global Sales. By integrating the operations of Japan and Asia Pacific under Mr. Minato, Japanese MNCs will gain easier access to some of the key emerging markets in Asia Pacific, while at the same time companies throughout the Asia Pacific region will benefit from the comprehensive network solutions provided by AT&T when they want to enter to the Japanese market.
