President Of GTE Telephone Operating Group Resigns
NEW YORK (AP) _ James L. Broadhead, the president of GTE Corp.’s Telephone Operating Group, is resigning at age 52 to pursue other interests, GTE said Thursday.
Broadhead’s resignation is unrelated to the ongoing reorganization at GTE that includes the creation of a new headquarters for the company’s local exchange carrier operations, the company said. Broadhead would not have been involved in the move to the new headquarters in any case.
″This resignation had nothing to do with differences of opinion over strategy,″ said Harvey Greisman, a spokesman at GTE’s headquarters in Stamford, Conn.
Some of Broadhead’s responsibilities will be taken over until a successor is named by Kent Foster, group vice president of telephone operations.
The Telephone Operating Group accounted for $11.8 billion of GTE’s $15.4 billion in sales last year.
