Lynch replaces Ralph Martinez, who recently was named regional vice president of Comcast's Twin Cities region in Minnesota.

Most recently, Lynch served as area vice president for Comcast in Southern Colorado and previously served in Comcast's Mile High Region as the general manager of Colorado Mountains as well as area VP of Northern Colorado. Before that she served as director of sales and marketing for Comcast's former West Bay Area and was the regional vice president of sales and marketing in Comcast's Maryland territory.

"Amy's history of superior operating results, laser focus on customer service, exceptional analytical skills and successful employee engagement are a few of the many reasons that Comcast has entrusted her with one of our most valuable operating areas," Robinson said in a statement.

Lynch began her career at Cox Communications and also held a variety of marketing and leadership positions at @Home Solutions/Excite@Home. An active member of Junior Achievement and Women in Cable Telecommunications, she holds a bachelor of arts degree in marketing and communications from the University of Connecticut.
