AT&T Business has recently announced Anne Chow will serve as its new CEO, ABC News reports. Chow is the first woman to hold that position and is now the highest ranking Asian American within AT&T.
“In her nearly 30 years in the industry, she strove to ‘break the bamboo ceiling’ by succeeding in non-traditional roles that spanned direct and indirect sales, to operations, to P&L management,” AT&T Business said in a statement. “She created one of AT&T’s fastest growing Employee Networks — AT&T Women of Business — which has 4,800 members across 27 countries.”
Chow received a Stevie Award for Female Executive of the Year in 2018. She most recently served as the company’s president of national business, according to Fierce Wireless.
Chow took to Twitter on Wednesday to thank some of her well-wishers.
“This is an exciting time at AT&T, and in AT&T Business, as we have a unique opportunity to provide our customers with the innovative solutions they need to better run their businesses and serve their customers,” Chow told ABC News in a statement. “With breakthrough technologies like 5G, businesses around the world will be poised to transform and disrupt their own industries. I look forward to this journey with an incredible team of women and men.”
