T-Mobile Appoints Larry Dolot as Vice President General Manager of its Ohio/Kentucky and Western Pennsylvania Region
As T-Mobile USA increases its presence in the Ohio/Kentucky and Western Pennsylvania region, the company has appointed Larry Dolot as the region’s first vice president general manager, responsible for all sales across all channels in the region. Dolot, who is based in the Cleveland area, is also responsible for profitable customer growth and retention, with full profit and loss (P&L) accountability in Ohio, Kentucky, and Western Pennsylvania.
“Larry is a veteran retailer working with outstanding brands such as Blockbuster, Borders and Target and he has consistently performed in his role as director of retail since joining T-Mobile a couple of years ago.”
T-Mobile began its regionalization efforts earlier this year to enable its vice presidents/general managers to invest in and run their markets as individual business units. Dolot will have the ability to influence network investment, store locations, customer offers and local marketing programs.
Dolot joined T-Mobile in 2009. Prior to joining the company, he was a division director for Borders, where he was responsible for 19 US retail stores with 625 associates and ten store locations throughout Michigan. Before Borders, Dolot served as a store general manager at Target, Inc. He also spent more than 15 years at Blockbuster, Inc., where he started as a store manager and rose through the ranks to manage marketing and operations for his district before being promoted to regional director. As a director, his regional responsibilities grew to 120 stores. Dolot then spent time developing the Game Rush Division of Blockbuster, where his region was ranked first nationally in game trades and pre-sell results.
“Larry is a veteran retailer working with outstanding brands such as Blockbuster, Borders and Target and he has consistently performed in his role as director of retail since joining T-Mobile a couple of years ago,” said Pancho Hall, senior vice president, central area, T-Mobile USA.
The Ohio/Kentucky and Western Pennsylvania region, which has 823,000 customers, consists of 17 retail stores, 69 branded locations, an additional 166 partner stores as well as 558 national retail partner stores. The company employs approximately 830 employees in the Ohio/Kentucky and Western Pennsylvania region across retail stores, enterprise sales, mid-market – B2B, small business – B2B, operations, finance, engineering, local marketing, human resources and other various functions.
“T-Mobile customers in Ohio, Kentucky, and Western Pennsylvania are fortunate to have someone local, like Larry, who knows what makes the area unique, and is dedicated to ensuring local customers receive the award-winning T-Mobile service they expect,” added Hall.
Dolot earned his Bachelor of Science degree from Michigan State University. He also received a Doctorate’s degree from William Scholl College of Medicine in Illinois. In his spare time, Dolot enjoys traveling with his wife and two children. He also enjoys attending sporting events and going to the theater. He also likes to spend his free time reading all types of literature for both personal and professional development.
