The CenturyLink career of Glen F. Post, III has spanned 36 years. He has served as Chief Executive Officer for 20 of those years and has directed all of the company's acquisitions and divestitures during this time. In less than ten years he's led the company from the eighth to the third largest telecommunications company in the U.S.
Post leads a highly respected management team that is focused on delivering high-quality products and services to their customers; enhancing the communities they serve in a meaningful way; creating a dynamic work environment for employees; and achieving industry-leading, long-term shareholder value.
His disciplined approach to strategic acquisitions and operations leadership as well as his focus on utilizing CenturyLink's strong cash flow and financial strength to drive long-term shareholder value has positioned the company for continuing growth. The 2009 acquisition of Embarq Corporation (which more than tripled the company's revenues and customer base) as well as the 2011 acquisitions of Qwest (which again more than doubled CenturyLink's size) and Savvis (a global leader in cloud infrastructure and hosted IT solutions for enterprises) were enabled by this approach and focus.
CenturyLink's 2011 annual revenues were $15 billion, up from $360 million in 1992 when Post was appointed CEO. On a proforma basis for the Qwest acquisition, CenturyLink revenues would have exceeded $18 billion in 2011.
Post serves on the National Security Telecommunications Advisory Committee (NSTAC), and chairs the Communications Security, Reliability, and Interoperability Council (CSRIC). Chief Executive Offi cer and President
