When communications giant AT&T completes its planned broadband "spin-off" and subsequent merger with Comcast Corp., the responsibilities of Betsy Bernard '77 will become a lot broader, too.

The company has named Bernard, currently the president and chief executive officer of AT&T's consumer division, president-designate of AT&T and the head of AT&T business. The promotion is effective when the spin-off of AT&T broadband is completed, which is expected to be finalized by the end of the year.

Bernard will succeed AT&T Chairman and CEO-elect David Dorman, and she will also head the company's network services group, according to a corporate announcement.

A government major and participant in the University's program of study in Kenya, Bernard was recently profiled on St. Lawrence's Web site -- click here to read the profile.
