Charter to Open New York Office6/04/2012 6:27 PM Eastern
Charter Communications said Monday in a brief filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission that it will open an office in the New York Metropolitan Area later this year to "house a limited number of senior executives."
Charter did not identify who those executives would be but the idea that the MSO would shift some management to the New York area has been kicked around ever since the company hired former Cablevision chief operating officer Tom Rutledge to be its new CEO in December. Other recent hires - chief operating officer John Bickham and chief marketing officer Jonathan Hargis, both former Cablevision executives - have homes in the New York area and would be likely candidates to occupy the New York facilities.
According to the SEC filing, Charter plans to leave in St. Louis most of the functions currently performed in St. Louis. No relocation of the functions housed in the Denver Corporate office is planned.
