Your social media platform of choice? Twitter
What product or service could you not live
without? Regrettably, it's devices-my iPhone
and my Surface Pro. I'm an apologist for always
being connected; it allows me the flexibility to
get to my kids events without guilt or remorse.
What's the first thing you read in the morning?

current job title where he continues to promote

for just competitive sports. Cable world in
Beantown is also highly aggressive, with new
technologies and new companies competing for
consumers. To outdo rivals, Pitcher focuses on
improvement in customer experience, aggregation
of Netflix and YouTube into the X1 platform,
and more. Her efforts have paid off: More than
half of the region's customers have subscribed
to Comcast's X1 entertainment operating system.
Grateful for her own past advisors, Pitcher
partakes in Mentoring Mondays.
The biggest innovation in media/broadband
over the last year? The launch of Xfinity Mobile.
The industry has tried a number of times
to enter the wireless space, but, in my view,
last year's entrance by Comcast is a gamechanger.
Xfinity Mobile is the first wireless
service combining America's largest and most
reliable 4G LTE network with 19 million Xfinity
WiFi hotspots. Customers can choose to pay
only for the gigabytes they use or select the
unlimited data plan-and then easily switch, if
they choose, from " By the Gig " for just $12 per
GB to " Unlimited " for $45/month per line, at any
time and no cost. It's the perfect combination of
best-in-class technology, a simple, customerfriendly
plan and a great value.
Best advice your mom or dad ever gave you?
" Can't never could. "
Worst advice your mom or dad ever gave
you? " Don't speak unless spoken to. "
