Sprint to Combine Headquarters at OP Campus

OVERLAND PARK, KS – Sprint Nextel has announced that it will combine its two headquarters locations at its Overland Park, Kan. campus. Sprint Nextel previously had its operational headquarters in Overland Park and its corporate headquarters in Reston, Va.

In a press release, Sprint Nextel CEO Dan Hesse said that the move will impact only a small number of senior leaders.

"After a thorough review, we determined that this change is necessary now so that our leadership team can concentrate on improving our company's operations and create a single, performance-based culture," Hesse said.

Reston had been the location of the company's headquarters since the Sprint Nextel merger in 2005.
