CenturyLink Inc. (NYSE: CTL) says it has combined its Enterprise Markets Group - Network Services and Regional Markets Group into a single organization, effective immediately. The newly combined group will report to Chief Operating Officer Karen Puckett.

The changes don’t affect CenturyLink's Wholesale Markets Group (WMG) and Enterprise Markets Group - Data Hosting segments. That includes Savvis, which remains part of the Data Hosting segment.

Starting with the first quarter of this year, CenturyLink will report the performance of four segments in its financial statements: Consumer, Business, Wholesale, and Data Hosting services.

"Our business segment continues to grow, and this organizational shift streamlines our end-to-end service delivery, support, and sales to our network services enterprise customers by creating one cohesive organization focused on them," said CenturyLink CEO and President Glen F. Post, III.

"Our local operating model is a key component in the success of our business and consumer service and sales," Post added. "In addition to her new responsibilities, Karen will continue to retain all of her existing duties, including our local market teams and consumer-focused operations. She is a proven effective leader and will ensure our continued strong focus on our customers."
