DISH Network Announces New Leadership, Organizational Framework
DISH Network Corp. has announced a slew of changes to the company’s leadership structure, aimed at “more effectively” organizing the company’s operational and staff leadership. Among the changes, DISH introduced a new President and CEO, Erik Carlson; welcomed a number of new group presidents; and announced a new organizational framework.
