Cox Communications

Education: BS, Syracuse; MBA, William & Mary
One Word that Best Describes Me: Funny (but

Education: New York University, Leonard Stern
School of Business; London School of Economics

Albert Q&A
The biggest innovation
in cable over the last
year? Continued innovation
in the X1 Platform.
It's a game changer.
The best thing about
fast broadband is... Connected everything
What are the top three qualities you look for
in a hire? Curiosity, passion, humor.
My OTT prediction is... With a robust TVE
product, there is no need for OTT. We've got it
that followed.
In his quest
to narrow the
digital divide,
Cohen uses
his position
to bring highspeed
Internet access to a growing number
of low-income and otherwise disenfranchised
communities. Cohen also collaborates with nonprofit
groups-including Boys and Girls Club of
North America, the United Way and Big Brothers
Big Sisters of America-to expand Comcast's
multicultural programming. And when not using
her expert legal advice in NBCU negotiations and
deals, Harris gives back as president of the SOAR
Foundation, which empowers young people to
succeed in business and in life.
