Sprint Announces Opening of Great Plains Regional Headquarters in Edina, MN
EDINA, Minn. (BUSINESS WIRE), July 21, 2016 - Sprint (NYSE: S) today announced the establishment of its Great Plains Region headquarters in Edina, Minnesota. The Great Plains Region geographic area covers Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska, North Dakota, and South Dakota. It includes more than 100 company-owned or Sprint-branded retail stores.
The new ONE Sprint organizational change announced earlier this year divided operations into 18 regions across the country. Each region is responsible for local sales, marketing, network performance, customer experience, and community engagement. “Bringing in local leadership allows us to be more responsive to our customers and connected to their experiences,” explained Michael McMahon, President of the new Great Plains Region. The new headquarters at 7700 S. France Ave. in Edina, MN is home to the region’s Retail, Indirect, Business Sales, Marketing, and Operations teams.
The creation of the new headquarters comes amid recent independent network studies showing Sprint shares first place rank in call performance and network reliability in the Twin Cities and Omaha. Analysis of independent third-party data also shows Sprint’s delivery of average download data speeds ahead of the other major carriers in the market. “More customers are flocking to Sprint to take advantage of our LTEPlus network download speeds and our 50% off competitor rate plans promotion1. We’re committed to provide a great in-store experience, as well,” McMahon said. He also shared that Sprint is in the midst of expanding its distribution, and plans to add more than 200 jobs at branded stores in the region over the next year.
