Paul Weirtz has been named president of AT&T Minnesota, according to a company news release. In the role, he will lead AT&T's legislative and community affairs activities in the state.

"I'm delighted to join the Minnesota community and work with local leaders to help bring the state the benefits of high-speed wireless broadband," Weirtz said in a statement. "This is an exciting time for AT&T and the state of Minnesota, as we are investing heavily in the state's broadband infrastructure to deliver fast, reliable mobile Internet connections to Minnesotans at home, work and everywhere in between."

Weirtz comes to Minnesota from AT&T Ohio, where he was a director of government affairs.

AT&T says it has invested more than $400 million in Minnesota over the past couple of years, with a focus on expanding 4G LTE mobile Internet coverage and enhancing the overall performance of its network.
