“We are proud of our long-standing tradition and leadership position in providing unparalleled products and services to our worldwide customer base,” said Tim Harden, president of AT&T Supply Chain and Fleet Operations. “We’re successful on that front in large part thanks to suppliers like Convergys that consistently stood out in providing AT&T with better products, services, or solutions.”

Convergys received one of 27 supplier recognition awards for its work in helping AT&T deliver outstanding service to its customers during the past year. Convergys was recognized for its contributions in the area of “Teamwork.”

"Convergys is very proud to have been honored by AT&T with this distinctive recognition that goes to the heart of our client-centric philosophy,” said Jim Boyce, president of Convergys, North America. “This recognition serves as a tribute to our dedicated AT&T account teams who have an intense focus on serving AT&T every day. Convergys is pleased and dedicated to going above and beyond for AT&T and for all our global clients as part of our corporate values and rich heritage of customer service.”

As part of its annual supplier recognition program, AT&T took out a half-page ad in the June 11, 2008, edition of The Wall Street Journal to publicly thank the selected companies.
