The president of Allstream, the MTS division that operates a national business fibreoptics network, is stepping down.

Dean Prevost, joined Allstream’s predecessor company, AT&T Canada Enterprises, in 1997 and held a variety of senior positions before becoming president.

Michael Strople, currently Allstream’s chief operating officer, has been named the new president.

In a prepared statement, MTS CEO Pierre Blouin said, "Dean has been a driving force behind Allstream’s evolution to become a leader in the Canadian business."

He said that Strople brings a "track record of success in both executive and operational roles across the telecommunications industry and has been a key player in Allstream’s successful strategy over the past few years."

MTS had a deal in place to sell Allstream last year to an Egyptian-based investment group, but it was rejected at the last moment by Industry Canada.
