In the 1990s, before heading back to school to earn an MBA, Lisanne Powers worked for the State of New York’s cable television channel—NY-SCAN, a localized version of C-Span. After graduating in 1999, Powers was hired by AT&T—just as the Internet took off—and she was trained to help manage AT&T’s Business DSL Services. Over the years, as technology changed, so did Powers’ role.
Currently, Powers is Lead Marketing Communications Manager for AT&T’s Unified Communications offerings, including AT&T Connect and AT&T Telepresence Solution. It’s a line of work she enjoys because Powers is a true believer that Unified Communications (UC) is the next big thing.
