Jim Murry, the president of AT&T Michigan, is leaving the company at the end of the year, the company said in a three-sentence statement confirming his departure.

The company announced early Thursday morning said he “is leaving the business to pursue other opportunities” on Dec. 31 after 12 years at the company. No other details were offered.
