Time Warner Cable elevated Kevin Leddy, a 32-year veteran of the company, to executive vice president of corporate strategy.
Leddy reports to Peter Stern, Time Warner Cable's executive vice president and chief strategy, people and corporate development officer.
Most recently TWC's EVP of technology policy and product management, Leddy will retain responsibility for technology policy and strategy and assume additional responsibility for enterprise-wide business strategy.
“Kevin is an experienced, accomplished and acknowledged leader in technology, marketing, product management and strategy. He is the ideal person to lead overall strategy for Time Warner Cable,” Stern said in making the announcement.
Time Warner Cable chief technology officer Mike LaJoie added, “Kevin has made a lasting impact on TWC’s technology, including digital applications, video-on-demand and DVRs. As he assumes additional accountability for business strategy, I look forward to continuing working with him as he helps navigate the company through the strategic opportunities and challenges of the communications marketplace.”
Leddy joined the company in 1980, when it was Warner Amex Cable, and held various positions before becoming chief marketing officer in 1990. In 1999, he moved into product management and strategic planning.
Before joining Time Warner Cable, he worked at the National Cable & Telecommunications Association. He holds a bachelor's degree from Colby College and an MBA from the University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School.
