Bickham to Leave Cablevision11/17/2011 4:39 PM Eastern
After about seven years with the company, Cablevision Systems president of cable communications John Bickham has informed the Bethpage, N.Y.-based MSO that he will resign later this month.
Bickham joined the company in 2004 after a long career at Time Warner Cable. In a statement, Bickham said he has been contemplating the move for awhile.
"I have been thinking about this move for some time and the timing seems right,"
Bickham said in the statement. "My goal when I came here eight years ago was to be a part of building something special. We collectively had a lot of success and I feel very fortunate to have worked with so many bright and creative people at Cablevision."
Cablevision had no comment beyond the press release announcing Bickham's decision.
"Much of Cablevision's success over the last decade is due in no small part to the efforts of John Bickham, and we will miss him," Cablevision chief operating officer Tom Rutledge said in a statement
Bickham was awarded the NCTA Vanguard Award for Cable Operations Management in 2007.
