CTPAA Taps Southwick, Stoddard for Board


Tom Southwick was elected secretary of the Cable Television Public Affairs Association, and Rob Stoddard was elected treasurer of the group.

Southwick is senior vice president of corporate communications at Starz Entertainment, and Stoddard is senior vice president of communications and public affairs at the National Cable & Telecommunications Association.

Following the resignation from the CTPAA board of Gemstar-TV Guide International Inc. executive Chris Levesque, CTPAA said its board decided to change its bylaws to split the vice president position into the positions of first vice president and second vice president.

Time Warner Cable senior vice president of corporate communications Hark Harrad was named first vice president, and Scientific-Atlanta Inc. vice president of strategic communications Peggy Ballard was named second VP.

Charter Communications Inc. executive Anita Lamont remains CTPAA president.
