Cingular’s shake-up continues

Jim Ryan, who has served as the vice president of consumer and business data services and has been mentioned in Seattle Times pages and blog posts many times, has stepped down from the position, according to RCR Wireless.

The online wireless newsletter said Ryan joined AT&T — previously called Cingular Wireless — in 2003, and oversaw several major initiatives.

Although based in Atlanta, Ihe was at one time oversaw the data group still based in Redmond after Cingular purchased AT&T Wireless.

Ryan was also involved with the launch of Cingular’s mobile video service, which is operated behind the scenes by Seattle’s RealNetworks.

RCR said an AT&T spokesman confirmed Ryan left the company “a couple of weeks ago.”

“He decided to look for other things to do,” said spokesman Mark Siegel, adding that he had no details regarding Ryan’s plans. “It was something he wanted to do, and we wish him all the best.”

Mark Collins, who had served as the carrier’s vice president of long-term products and planning services, replaced Ryan.
