Re: Transition
Hopefully they will be able to carry out their transitions smoothly. Or at least have some sort of failsafe or contingency plan in place to make sure that service isn't disrupted for all of their customers while they are handling all the moving around. It will be a true test for the new CEO to make sure that any hiccups along the way is managed with grace...

Re: Transition
Things are certainly challenging for CenturyLink as customers choose among the competitive challengers for internet service and where video will lead any future business plans for the company will be something to watch out for.

Transition
During times of transition is perceived as a time of weakness until the new leadership can get accustomed to the company vision and develop their own plan. Hopefully they will not lose customers during the transition time and will be able to keep customers and shareholders happy. It might be a good idea to hire Storey as a consultant for the next 6 months to ensure the company remains on track. Sadly most CEOs have big egos and the new CEO probably won't take advantage on Storey's instiutional knowledge.

New CEO CenturyLink
CenturyLink is in a time of transition. It will be interesting to see if the new CEO can continue with the same vision or a better vision or falter and bring the company down. The new CEO has a lot of pressure on him. Hopefully he can take on the challenge. Hopefully he utilizes good staff to help him lead the way to new ventures and help the company remain stable.

CEO retire
It is always good to leave when you are on top. He tranformed Century Link into an innovative technology leader. I am sure he is getting a huge retirement package. He is leaving at a time when the company has a good reputation and is financial sound.

Re: Changing Hands
With 42 years at the company and over half at the top, Post certainly leaves with lots of experience in the rapidly changing industry. There may be lots of speculation about the transition coming and how CenturyLink will compete with it's growth pattern still moving forward againt competition from all sides.

Re: Changing Hands
I think it means CenturyLink feels stable and the acquisition is well under control, the company knows where it wants to go and be. Otherwise, they would not have been okay with these leadership changes - albeit already long-planned - happening sooner than scheduled.

Changing Hands
Now seems like a good time, although also a stressful one, for Century Link to get a fresh face and new ideas at the top. I am interested to see the direction Storey takes the company and if they can change my perception of them.

Consumers are buying millions of IoT devices, from smart thermostats and security systems to intelligent entertainment setups and furniture. Yet many of these devices remain isolated because home users are uncomfortable connecting them to each other or even their WiFi. After all, their WiFi network was probably designed only to handle a few laptops, a gaming system and a couple of smartphones. Now, demand on the network is surging and even though you're delivering 100 Mbps to 1 Gbps, that doesn't necessarily mean the broadband power is in the right place or reaches every corner of a home.

Even if WiFi coverage is sufficient, typing is not on trend. Voice is far more natural, easier and faster. Using a TV keyboard is archaic when more and more households have access to cloud-based voice services, like Amazon Alexa. This webinar will explore how service providers can create a comfortable, truly smart home for consumers simultaneously driving up margin and loyalty.
