the World”

Speaking at the October 24 Chief Executives’ Club of Boston, John Stratton, president of Verizon Enterprise Solutions, described some of the ways Verizon is responding to the “incredible pace of technology.” The company is pursuing opportunities “to change the way businesses run, the way customers shop, and the way everyone lives, works, and plays,” said Stratton, who stood in at the last minute for Verizon chairman and chief executive officer Lowell McAdam. He also said Verizon is committed to continuing to grow in the Boston area. Joseph M. Tucci, chairman and chief executive officer of EMC Corporation, introduced Stratton.
