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.
