Brooks L. McCorcle

President – Emerging Business Markets, AT&T Corp

Brooks McCorcle has leadership responsibility for identifying and launching innovative solutions to drive value and growth in AT&T Business Solutions. The breadth of her experience, combined with her passion and boundless energy, has made her a respected leader who can inspire teams and deliver results.

Brooks "crowd-sourced" talent to launch the AT&T Partner ExchangeSM reseller program that was operational in less than 90 days.

Brooks and her team are "breaking glass" – approaching the market differently. The organization operates like an innovative, fast-moving startup, with the strength and financial backing of the AT&T brand to help solution providers attract new customers, grow sales and innovate with AT&T. AT&T is opening up some functionality for solution providers to gain unprecedented visibility into certain systems, processes, tools and application programming interfaces (APIs).

Over her 22-year tenure with AT&T and its predecessor companies, Brooks has held positions in Mergers & Acquisitions and Finance, and executive positions in Consumer Marketing, Customer Care and Sales. Previously, Brooks led Investor Relations for AT&T, where she directed financial communications and maintained relationships with institutional investors and analysts around the world.

Brooks was named to CRN's 2013 Women of the Channel list that highlights female executives across vendor channel organizations, distributors and solution providers based on their accomplishments over the past year, and the far–reaching impact they are having on the technology industry going forward. She was also recognized as one of this year's Power 100, an elite subset of the women based on their rank, influence, channel savvy and exceptional achievements.

In 2012, Brooks was named among the "Top 30 Women in Finance" by Treasury & Risk Magazine, and was also named the "#1 Investor Relations Professional in the Telecom Industry" by Institutional Investor Magazine for 2011. In 2012 and 2013, she received the President's Volunteer Service Award for inspiring others – through her demonstrated commitment and example – to engage in volunteer service.

A native of Texas, Brooks holds an MBA from the Olin Business School at Washington University and a BBA from Southern Methodist University. She holds community leadership positions with the Friends of the Dallas Public Library and the Center for Brain Health at the University of Texas (Dallas). In addition, she actively serves as a coach and mentor for others, including more than 12 years with the Women of AT&T mentoring program, and as an executive sponsor for the AT&T Women of Finance organization. Brooks also attended "Fortune's Most Powerful Women Summit" and participated in the "Women in the World Summit."

Brooks lives in Texas with her husband, and they have three sons. She enjoys fly fishing, gardening and art collecting.
