Sprint Nextel Hires Joseph Euteneuer as CFO
Sprint Nextel has hired Joseph Euteneuer as chief financial officer (CFO), succeeding Bob Brust, who is retiring. Sprint announced in late 2010 that it had reached an agreement with Euteneuer, who was then serving as executive vice president (EVP), CFO for Qwest Communications International, to join the company following the completion of the merger between Qwest and CenturyLink. On 1 April 2011, CenturyLink announced the closure of its merger with Qwest.
Before serving as Qwest’s CFO, Euteneuer served as EVP and CFO of XM Satellite Radio Holdings, a satellite radio provider, from 2002 until September 2008 after it merged with SIRIUS Satellite Radio. Before joining XM, Euteneuer held various management positions at Comcast Corporation and its subsidiary, Broadnet Europe.
Euteneuer holds a bachelor’s degree in accounting from Arizona State University, and he is a certified public accountant (CPA).
