AT&T Named Most Admired Telecommunications Company


One of Top 50 Most Admired Companies in the World

Dallas, Texas.-AT&T* today announced that Fortune magazine has named AT&T the Most Admired Company in the telecommunications industry, marking 11 times in 14 years AT&T has received the top distinction. Fortune also named AT&T among the Top 50 Most Admired companies in the world — across all industries — for the second time.

AT&T joins an elite group of other corporate leaders ranked No. 1 in their industries, including Procter & Gamble, Visa, Wal-Mart Stores and FedEx.

“AT&T is committed to being the industry leader — delivering the mobility, bandwidth and services that people and businesses need to stay connected, anytime, anywhere,” said Randall Stephenson, AT&T chairman, chief executive officer and president. “This honor is a real tribute to the competitive drive, the passion to serve and the innovative spirit that defines the people of AT&T.”

The magazine’s Most Admired Companies lists are among the most highly respected registers of corporate performance and reputation in the nation. This year, the magazine changed its survey format, combining the world’s and America’s Most Admired surveys into one global survey.

To identify the Most Admired Companies, Fortune and its partner, the Hay Group, survey top executives and directors from Fortune 1000 and Global 500 companies, along with financial analysts, to identify companies that have the strongest reputations both inside and outside their industries. Companies are rated on attributes that include the ability to attract and retain talented people, the quality of products and services, the quality of management, innovation, social responsibility, use of corporate assets and long-term investment value.
