Sprint's North Carolina and South Carolina sales regions will be overseen by a new president, Michael Miess, the Overland Park, Kansas company recently announced.
“We have a great opportunity to expand and strengthen our presence here in the South," Miess said. "I am thrilled to be a part of a company like Sprint that has such a strong commitment to achieving customer success market by market.”
Miess' most recent job was vice president for enterprise sales and account management at Windstream Communications in North Carolina. He has also worked for T-Mobile, Time Warner and Alltel.
In his role with Sprint, Miess will be based in Charlotte, South Carolina. His duties will include sales management, customer service, day-to-day operations and network issues.
“Our new regional structure will help us compete more effectively in the South by better connecting with our customers where they live and work," Jaime Jones, Sprint's area president for the South, said. "Throughout his career, Michael has proven that he can lead local teams and a local strategy. We’re excited he has joined us and his talent will help us enhance our customers’ experience in the region.”
Sprint was recently divided into four areas: West, Central, Northeast and South. Charlotte is one of the company's top 19 market areas.
