Suddenlink Communications said it has hired Gregg Graff as senior vice president of sales. He will be based in St. Louis at the company's corporate headquarters and will lead all residential sales related activities across all channels.
Graff comes to Suddenlink from Insight Communications, where he served as SVP of field operations and was a driving force behind the Insight sales team that generated 16-percent growth in basic TV customers over a four-year period. Earlier, he served as SVP of video services and senior vice president of operations at Insight, which was acquired by Time Warner Cable in a transaction that closed in February.
"We are delighted to have Gregg join the Suddenlink team," Suddenlink chief operating officer Tom McMillin said in a release. "He is a proven executive with a respected background in operations, sales, and all facets of our business. We look forward to him continuing his success in gaining market share for Suddenlink."
Graff, a 28-year veteran of the communications industry, holds a Bachelor's Degree in Communications from John Carroll University and is a graduate of the Cable Executive Management program at the Harvard Business School.
Graff is an avid snow and water sports enthusiast and volunteers time teaching these sports to young people.
