The head of AT&T Government Solutions has resigned.

Multiple sources confirm that Kay Kapoor is leaving and will be replaced by Xavier Williams, a long-time AT&T executive and former head of federal sales.

Emails to AT&T and a LinkedIn message to Kapoor seeking comments were not returned.

Kay Kapoor resigned as president of AT&T Government Solutions after more than 4 years.

Kapoor joined AT&T Government Solutions in March 2013 and has helped move the division out of just being a telecommunications firm and into a broader telecommunications, network services role.

According to the portal, AT&T Government Solutions has won more than 1,300 contracts worth more than $340 million since 2013.

Williams has been with AT&T since 1990. He’s worked in a variety of positions, including executive vice president of global customer service and president of national business. Since April, Williams has been president of business operations.

Before coming to AT&T, Kapoor was CEO of Accenture Federal Services, had a short stint at ITT, where she served as vice president of the company’s Advanced Information Systems, and spent 20 years at Lockheed Martin, where she served as vice president and deputy of the company’s federal civilian business.
