Team Works
Something pretty cool happened at Cablefax's Top Ops awards dinner last
month. When Cable ONE COO Mike Bowker took the stage to accept the MSO
of the Year award, he was joined by nine Cable ONE frontline employees from
across the company footprint. " It's these folks who actually earned MSO of the
year, " Bowker said, introducing Joseph Guess, Andrew Jachowski, Jeffrey Otto,
Marilee Park, Jessica Phiffer, Daniel Swanson, Amanda Turner, Gloria White and
Estella Mundez.
The crowd went wild. Really. Because in that simple gesture Cable ONE
encapsulated what everyone in the room knows-it really is all about the team.
And while Bowker could only bring a select group of employees, it was clear he
was talking about all of Cable ONE's more than 2300 employees. No one management
team or single business decision can make a company. It's about the
people who work there. Even this year's Top Ops honorees receiving individual
awards were quick to credit their colleagues. " Across the country, there are 15
market leaders and all of us do an amazing job each and every day in a challenging
role-not only delivering great business results, but leading groups of
proud Comcasters, " MSO Regional Executive winner Mary McLaughlin said at
last month's event. " We're all part of a bigger team. "
In these pages, we detail a bit more about what makes these companies and
executives special-from moving away from video to launching the services of
tomorrow today. In many instances, the operators and individuals honored take
a community-wide approach to their businesses-a recognition that teamwork
isn't just about your company but the places you serve. I hope, in the spirit of
teamwork, that there's something you'll read here and take back to your job.
I'd be remiss if I didn't mention that as we were putting this magazine to bed,
cable legend Les Read passed away. Les, who received the Cablefax Cable Lifetime
Achievement Award in 2012, had a storied career at TelePrompTer and HBO.
He led the Cable Television Pioneers for two decades and was
The Cable Center's ambassador. He was the voice of both the Pioneers
and Cable Center dinners for years. For me personally, Les
was one of the first people I met in the industry who genuinely
made me feel welcome. Over the years, Les would drop me a line
to tell me of a cable pioneer's passing. " We lost quite a character, "
one such note began-his usual " Cheers " closing replaced
with " Cheerless. " I know the feeling. You're missed Mr. HBO.
