The National Association of Broadcasters said Dexter Goei, the president of the board at Altice N.V. and CEO and chairman of Altice USA, will be a keynoter at this month’s NAB Show in Las Vegas.
NAB said Goei’s keynote, slated for Tuesday, April 25 at Noon PT, is titled “Global Growth and the Future of Media,” and will focus on how global media companies are emerging as new leaders in the television market.
Altice USA formed from Altice’s acquisitions of Suddenlink Communications in Dec. 2015, and Cablevision Systems in June 2016, and now has about 4.9 million customers across 21 states.
Among its initial moves, Altice USA has filed IPO documents, and embarked on a major FTTP upgrade in its Optimum (formerly Cablevision) and Suddenlink footprints. It’s also working on a new Home Hub Center that will use a new user interface.
“The whole beauty of NAB Show is that it brings together a diverse range of voices from all sides of the media and entertainment spectrum, and hosting a standout voice in the pay TV sector is a testament to that,” said Chris Brown, NAB executive vice president, Conventions and Business Operations, said in a statement. “To that end, we are very excited to have Dexter Goei – one of cable telecommunications’ greatest leaders – for a keynote discussion on the global growth of media companies at this year’s show.”
