9/15/2004 8:42 AM Eastern

ADC Telecommunications Inc. said Wednesday that it has revised its executive-leadership structure.

The vendor’s regional leaders for the Americas, EMEA (Europe/Middle East/Africa), Asia and Indo-Pacific regions will report directly to CEO Robert E. Switz, and the presidents of the connectivity, systems-integration and wireline/wireless business units will continue reporting to Switz.

Also, ADC's wireline and wireless business units will be combined under the leadership of Mike Pratt, who will serve as the president of the newly combined division.

"These changes strengthen ADC's focus on the varied needs of our global customer base and will facilitate streamlined decision-making," Switz said in a prepared statement.

"We are 100% committed to meeting our customers' needs around the world,” he added. “This change provides a clear and direct linkage between the CEO and the decision-makers in the regions and business units, facilitating rapid execution in the marketplace."
