De la Vega played an instrumental role in AT&T snagging iPhone exclusivity in the handset's early days, along with serving as COO of Cingular Wireless when it merged into AT&T Mobility.

Recently, de la Vega moved from heading AT&T Mobility, where he helped push the company from 3G to 4G, to business and international operations amidst a broader restructuring.
