Qwest Executive Vice President Barry Allen,
recruited in August 2002 by friend Dick Notebaert to help turn
around the Denver telco, is retiring June 29, the company
announced Tuesday. Allen and Notebaert had worked together in
top executive posts at Ameritech, which was acquired by SBC.
Allen initially ran Qwest's human resources department before
becoming executive vice president of operation in March 2004.
"The time (to leave) is right and the company is on great
footing, Allen 58, said.
"I'm looking forward to getting back to the Midwest . . . (and)
focus on family, fun and philanthropy."
Robert Tregemba, vice president of network operations and
engineering, will assume the new role of executive vice
president of network operations.
