AT&T Indiana president Fleetwood leaves company

The head of AT&T’s operations in Indiana has left the company after more than 13 years at the helm.

George Fleetwood’s tenure as AT&T Indiana’s president officially ended Sept. 1, he told IBJ on Thursday.

“It just became apparent that this was a good time for my departure,” said Fleetwood, 59.

“There was no specific event” that caused him to leave, he said. “I just felt like I had done what I had been doing long enough.”

In an email, a company spokesman stated: “George Fleetwood has left the company to pursue other interests, and we wish him well.”

Fleetwood began working for the company in 1997, which was Ameritech Indiana at the time, as the vice president of government relations. He moved up to president in 2000.

He was unsure whether he would retire or if he would pursue other work. His first post-AT&T plan is to write a book about his world travels.

Paul LaSchiazza, president of AT&T's Midwest region, is serving as the interim president of AT&T Indiana while the company searches for Fleetwood’s permanent replacement.

  1. I am so impressed that the smoking ban FAILED in Kokomo! I might just move to your Awesome city!

  2. way to much breweries being built in indianapolis. its going to be saturated market, if not already. when is enough, enough??

  3. This house is a reminder of Hamilton County history. Its position near the interstate is significant to remember what Hamilton County was before the SUPERBROKERs, Navients, commercial parks, sprawling vinyl villages, and acres of concrete retail showed up. What's truly Wasteful is not reusing a structure that could still be useful. History isn't confined to parks and books.

  4. To compare Connor Prairie or the Zoo to a random old house is a big ridiculous. If it were any where near the level of significance there wouldn't be a major funding gap. Put a big billboard on I-69 funded by the tourism board for people to come visit this old house, and I doubt there would be any takers, since other than age there is no significance whatsoever. Clearly the tax payers of Fishers don't have a significant interest in this project, so PLEASE DON'T USE OUR VALUABLE MONEY. Government money is finite and needs to be utilized for the most efficient and productive purposes. This is far from that.

  5. I only tried it 2x and didn't think much of it both times. With the new apts plus a couple other of new developments on Guilford, I am surprised it didn't get more business. Plus you have a couple of subdivisions across the street from it. I hope Upland can keep it going. Good beer and food plus a neat environment and outdoor seating.
