LANSING — AT&T Inc. has named David Lewis president of AT&T Michigan. Lewis is a near 10-year veteran of the company’s external, government, and public affairs efforts.
A native of Indianapolis, Lewis joined AT&T Indiana in 2009 as the company’s director of external and corporate affairs. In addition to his service to AT&T, Lewis has been a member of the board of directors for the Indianapolis Chamber of Commerce, the United Way of Central Indiana, the Hispanic Business Council, the Fort Wayne Urban League, and the NAACP state education committee.
“We are absolutely thrilled to have someone of David’s background and professional experience leading our team in Michigan,” said Paul La Schiazza, AT&T North Central Region president. “Michigan has an impressive track record of implementing forward-thinking public policy when it comes to
communications and technology, and I am confident that David’s leadership will continue to position AT&T as a leader in this effort.”
AT&T has more than 6,000 employees working and 13,000 retirees living in Michigan, and the company has invested more than $1.4 billion in its wired and wireless networks in Michigan between 2014 and 2016.
“AT&T’s reputation around the State Capitol and in communities across Michigan is strong, and the work we are doing is bringing greater investment and innovation to benefit everyone,” Lewis said. “I am excited, honored, and eager to lead the AT&T Michigan team and to make Michigan my new home.”
Lewis began his career in public service as an Indiana Governor’s Fellow. Following his fellowship, David worked for the Indiana Department of Commerce in the Community Development Division before joining the Office of Lieutenant Governor as special assistant for legislative affairs.
In 2001, David joined U.S. Senator Evan Bayh’s office as his regional director for Central Indiana, and in 2003, was appointed as Indiana’s Clerk of the Supreme Court, Court of Appeals, and Tax Court, making him the fourth African American in the history of Indiana to serve as a state-wide elected official and the second African American to serve as Clerk.
Lewis has a bachelor’s degree from Ball State University and a Master of Public Affairs degree from Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis.
