“This is the next step in the evolution of our strategy to better serve 23 million subscribers within the value market,” Brouillette said in a statement.  

She added that the new organization “will accelerate our efforts to drive efficiencies while enabling us to invest in the growth brands that more closely meet our diverse customers’ needs.” 

According to her LinkedIn profile, Klein has been with Verizon for more than 20 years. In addition to her current role overseeing Visible, an all-digital wireless carrier owned by Verizon, her positions with the company have included senior vice president of consumer segment marketing, among other leadership assignments. Her background spans product development and brand strategy to call center and retail operations, as well as customer experience design.
