Qwest announced today that Rahn Porter has been named senior vice president of investor relations, replacing Stephanie Comfort, who was recently promoted to a new corporate strategy position.

Porter, who has more than 30 years of industry experience, recently served as Qwest's vice president of finance-treasury.  He will report to Qwest chief financial officer John Richardson.

Porter began his career with Northwestern Bell Telephone Company in 1974.  From 1989-2000, he held a number of key financial positions with US West and MediaOne Group.

Comfort was promoted last week to senior vice president of corporate strategy.  She will report directly to new CEO Ed Mueller.
