January 7, 2012 6:54AM (UTC)
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Four executives are leaving Sprint Nextel Corp. in a reorganization that will combine the sales and marketing functions for both its consumer and business units.
Spokesman Scott Sloat confirmed the move, which was laid out in a memo sent by Sprint CEO Dan Hesse on Friday.
The news was reported earlier by Reuters.
Sprint is in the midst of a costly upgrade to put its phones on a "4G" network, and Hesse expressed the need to become more efficient in the memo.
Sprint shares fell 5 cents, or 2.2 percent, to close at $2.19 on Friday.
