Advance/Newhouse Chairman Will Be Honored At October's CTAM Summit
The CTAM board of directors has selected Advance/Newhouse Communications chairman Robert Miron as the recipient of its 2009 Grand TAM award.
The Grand TAM is the cable marketing group's highest honor and is bestowed in recognition of an executive's time, talent and commitment made to ensure the future of the industry through marketing, education and leadership.
"Bob Miron has been a long-time champion of collaboration between companies through industry associations, including CTAM, said Sean Bratches, executive vice president, sales and marketing, ESPN, Inc. and chair, CTAM board of directors, in a statement. "He is a marketing and management innovator, and was one of the first to deliver the Dan Aaron Lecture on Innovative Management at CTAM U.".
Miron is not only being honored for his support of marketing excellence within his own company and CTAM, but for his work across the industry. He's a strong voice in the policy debates at the NCTA, in technology
Early on, Miron knew the value of content and upon his recommendation Advance/Newhouse invested in the then-fledgling Discovery Channel, now a proven success story. He fostered national achievement while engaging the local foundation upon which cable was built at Advance/Newhouse's MSO, which went to market under the brands Vision Cable, NewChannels Cable and Metrovision. As chairman of the NCTA and co-chair of the industry's original customer service committee, he championed an industry-wide focus on providing excellent customer service. His customer-centric philosophy has proven successful as it continues to enable the company to strengthen and grow in an increasingly competitive environment.
Miron will be honored at The CTAM Summit, which will be held in Denver, Oct. 25 - 27, 2009. For more information about the Summit and to register, go to: www.ctamsummit.com.
