Downtown Columbus

AT&T logoCapital Crossroads Special Improvement District is grateful to its Business Members, whose support is vital to the SID’s efforts. The additional revenue raised through the Business Membership program allows Capital Crossroads to undertake additional initiatives central to the mission of making Downtown Columbus the cleanest, safest and best place to live, work and play in Central Ohio. Each quarter, we recognize a Business Member, whose commitment to downtown is solidified through its voluntary support of Capital Crossroads.

AT&T has called Downtown Columbus home for more than 135 years. Their offices at 150 E. Gay St. house sales managers and call center representatives, as well as AT&T Ohio President, Adam Grzybicki. Ohio Director of External Affairs for Central Ohio Nicole Staples Walker explained the decision to become a Business Member in 2014 reflected AT&T’s commitment to the communities they serve.

“We collaborate with various local organizations like Capital Crossroads across Ohio and the United States,” said Walker. “Becoming a Business Member has allowed us to demonstrate AT&T’s commitment to the Columbus community and to ensure that our employees are aware of the services that the SID provides.”

A downtown presence is essential for AT&T Ohio operations. They maintain offices on Gay Street and also at Long and Fourth streets, which houses equipment for their wireless and wireline network, as well as sales and government affairs.

Walker noted that the SID’s work in the area of safety was of particular importance to AT&T. In fact, Walker was part of the SID’s Privacy and Security event hosted in June. She provided tips regarding identity theft, email fraud, free security apps and safeguarding personal information. She also outlined AT&T’s new Digital You program, which offers tools, tips, apps, guidance and education events for people of all ages and experience levels.

“Exploring how to use a smartphone or tablet to guard against identity theft or to take a stand against cyberbullying can make navigating cyberspace less daunting and more fulfilling,” explained Walker.

Capital Crossroads is proud to have AT&T Ohio as a Business Member and is grateful for their support of the Improve the Security of Your Workplace event in June.
