Time Warner Shuffles Exec Deck8/11/2002 8:00 PM Eastern
Time Warner Cable is shifting some executives in a reorganization that aims to consolidate operations around three basic business pillars: new product development and deployment, marketing and customer service.
In the new product silo, the MSO is promoting vice president of corporate development Mike LaJoie to a new title, executive vice president of advanced technology. Mike Hayashi will join his team, continuing as senior vice president for advanced engineering and subscriber technology, as will Kevin Leddy, who will take over as senior vice president of platform development.
At the marketing helm will be Chuck Ellis, who will move from operations to become executive vice president and chief marketing officer. He will oversee senior vice president for marketing Brian Kelly and senior vice president of customer care David Temlak.
Carl Rossetti will change his role from executive vice president of operations to executive vice president of new business development. His team will include Rick Davies, senior vice president for corporate development; Gerry Campbell, senior vice president for voice; and Pat Armstrong, senior vice president for new product management.
Time Warner Cable also has pared down the operating management team from six to five system leaders under President Tom Baxter. They are: John Bickham, James Fellhauer, Bill Goetz, Barry Rosenblum and Terry O’Connell.
Jeff King, in the dual role of executive vice president of network engineering and president of Road Runner, will lead another operating unit and will report to Baxter.
