Date:2/13/2009

John Rooney Will Address Diversity and Inclusion as Key Elements to an Environment of Respect

WHEATON, Ill., Feb. 13 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- John E. Rooney, keynote speaker for the 2009 AbilityLinks Employment Expo, is known as the "maverick" of the wireless industry because of his passionate commitment to complete customer satisfaction. Rooney, U.S. Cellular President and CEO, will address job seekers, employers, and service providers at the Expo on April 9 at the DoubleTree Guest Suites & Conference Center in Downers Grove.

The AbilityLinks Consortium Employment Expo will provide a full day of education, training, mock interviews, and dynamic networking opportunities, all designed to improve employment opportunities for persons with disabilities. For more information on the Expo including information on sponsorships, reserving a booth at the job fair, or attending as a job seeker, visit www.AbilityLinks.org.

Under Rooney's leadership at U.S. Cellular, diversity and inclusion are key elements for creating an environment of respect and ethics for all customers and associates. These elements are woven and integrated throughout the business operation in the areas of recruitment, retention, community alliances and market opportunities/partnerships.

Rooney joined U.S. Cellular as president and CEO in April 2000, changing the company's business strategy by focusing on complete customer satisfaction. This vision required a new leadership model - a culture of teamwork among all associates to focus on U.S. Cellular's efforts on satisfying the customer. Thanks to its customer-focused philosophy, U.S. Cellular now has one of the best customer retention records in the wireless industry.

Over the past two years, U.S. Cellular has seen unprecedented growth under Rooney's guidance by introducing service into numerous new markets. The company's entrance into the Chicago market was one of the most successful in its history. Highlights included a long-term agreement with the Chicago White Sox for the naming rights to U.S. Cellular Field and inking a $1.6 million sponsorship with the City of Chicago to support free festivals for the community.

Born and raised on the South Side of Chicago, Rooney earned a bachelor's degree in business administration from John Carroll University in Ohio and an MBA in finance from Loyola University.

The AbilityLinks consortium of businesses, government agencies, and nonprofit organizations was established in 2001 by Marianjoy Rehabilitation Hospital to increase employment opportunities for people with disabilities. The award-winning website -- www.AbilityLinks.org -- brings together business and job candidates with disabilities. The AbilityLinks staff provides ongoing support to website users including job seekers, companies, and schools and nonprofit organizations that assist disabled individuals to prepare for and find work.
