Hackley leads one of the most successful regions in Comcast.
Under his leadership, the Greater Boston Region had
a tremendous 2014. When the year commenced, Hackley
toured the region, and shared his strategy as to how business
could grow. One of his most notable achievements
over the last 12 months was the completion of a project
to construct the first Comcast-owned submarine fiber
optic cable to Martha's Vineyard ensuring services to the
island's 16,000-plus residents.

Title: Regional SVP, Oregon/SW Washington Region,
Comcast Cable

Best Advice in 7 Words or Less: Work hard, think

Lopez spent 2014 working with many teams to improve
customer service, leading the Oregon and Southwest
Washington region to achieving its lowest contact rate
in the company. Along the way, he continued to improve
field operation metrics throughout the region. An authentic
leader, Lopez lends a personal touch to his interactions as
he continues to spearhead emphasis on enhancing the
customer experience. Accessible and relatable, he strives
to give his team a vision that fosters forward-thinking.

Those who have known Guthrie during his 30 years at
Comcast see him as a great people person, a strong
communicator and a manager who is heavily focused
on employee engagement and leadership development.
Clearly, the Big South Region is richer for Guthrie's
qualities as both an executive and a human being. A
supporter of the Special Olympics, Guthrie personally
mentors three individuals: a college student, a small
business owner and a Comcast leader.
I watch most programming on this device: Samsung
65-inch
The biggest innovation in cable over the last year:
X1 Entertainment Operating System
Should the industry embrace or reject " virtual
MSOs " and why? It simply is not a compelling win for
consumers.
What's the next big broadband project no one's
talking about yet and why? Multi-Gig speeds will once

14. SINGULAR SENSATION
Tom Might
Title: CEO, Cable ONE
Years in Cable: More than 20
Education: BS,
Industrial Engineering,
Georgia Institute of
Technology, 1972;
MBA, Harvard
Business School,
1978
Best Advice in 7
Words or Less:
Work hard. Play hard.
As an industrial engineer, Might literally views things from a
different perspective. Maybe that's why last year, under his
leadership, expenses were down 2 percent and operating
cash flow was up more than 10 percent. This year sees
added challenges including spinning off Cable ONE from
Graham Holdings as a separately traded company. Might
also will continue to aggressively contain costs through
operations strategy projects across the organization.
I wish Congress would just... stop spending more money.
Should the industry embrace or reject " virtual
MSOs " and why? Embrace! Let's not behave like
bookstores, newspapers, or the music industry did, and
pretend we have a pass on technological disruption.
The technology that will most benefit cable over the
next year: OTT
My favorite business/motivational book: Great by
Choice by Jim Collins and Younger Next Year by Chris
Crowley.
again change the game, but once again consumers are
not sure why they would need it.
If I had a show on YouTube
it would be called... " How to
Fill a Day "
The day we get multiplatform
measurement is the day I...
buy more Comcast stock.
Apple iWatch or Rolex? Huge
fan of Apple, but until the iWatch
can go a week without a charge...
If I could interrupt Kanye West just once, I would
tell him... good luck with Tidal.
I wish Congress would just... address transportationinfrastructure
issues.
Twitter, Instagram or Snapchat? Cyber Dust
My favorite newfound hobby: Scoring baseball games
If Disney hired me to reboot " Star Wars " I would...
just let JJ Abrams do his thing.
If my office produced a viral video, the background
music would be... " Happy "
The technology that will most benefit cable over the
next year is: Programmatic Advertising
The awards show the industry needs right now is...
consolidation.
Who's on deck for the next celebrity meltdown?
The Real Rob Lowe
Who's on tap for the next big comeback? Justin Bieber
Desert island album: Very Best of Stan Getz
Favorite TV show as a kid: " Starsky & Hutch "
The last time I had a good laugh was... when " Seinfeld "
was in production.
My favorite business/motivational book: The Talent
Masters: Why Smart Leaders Put People Before Numbers
by Bill Conaty and Ram Charan
16. THE MVP
Rebecca Schulte
Title: President, Comcast
SportsNet Mid-Atlantic,
Comcast Cable
Years in Cable: 17
Education: BA, Radio,
TV and Film,
California State University,
Long Beach
Best Advice in 7 Words or
Less: Work for the job you

Schulte oversees all aspects of Comcast SportsNet
Mid-Atlantic, part of the NBC Sports Regional Networks.
She brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to her
role, which has helped the area experience tremendous
growth and innovation in all facets of the network's
operation. A veteran sports media executive, her accolades
include the Women in Cable Telecommunications
Geraldine B. Laybourne Fearless Award, a Grand Clio
Advertising Award, and yes... even an Emmy.

favorite.
