Noski was a partner at Deloitte & Touche up until 1990. He joined AT&T in 1999, serving as senior executive vice president and chief financial officer and was named vice chairman of AT&T’s board of directors in 2002. Noski retired from AT&T following completion of its restructuring in November 2002.
