REGIONALS
11. TWO FOR ONE
Thomas O. Might
Title: Chairman & CEO, Cable ONE
Years in Cable: 30+
Education: BS, Industrial Engineering, Georgia Tech;
MBA, the Harvard Business School
One Word that Best Describes Me: Contrarian
Julie M. Laulis
Title: President & COO,
Cable ONE
Years in Cable: 32
Education: BA, Telecom,
Indiana U.; HBS Program for
Management Development
One Word that Best Describes
Me: Energetic
Over the last year, Laulis has helped to lead Cable
ONE's ongoing strategy of forsaking video services in
favor of high-speed data services. As the company
continues to migrate its business away from pay TV to
focus on residential and commercial high-speed data,
Laulis is working on another important change: keeping
installers out of customer homes. Meanwhile, Might
stays focused on the continued growth of Cable ONE
Business, which has been growing 20 percent annually
during the last five years. A strategic thinker, Might led
the effort to spin off Cable ONE from parent company
Graham Holdings.
Thomas Might
The biggest innovation in cable over the last year:
Internet-only subscriber growth
What was your first job? I was a busboy before I was
a CEO!
" Star Trek " celebrates its 50th Anniversary this
year. So if Mr. Spock's motto is " Live Long and
Prosper, " mine is... Live slow. Sail fast.
The technology that will most benefit cable over
the next year is: OTT
My typical breakfast is: Bacon and eggs. Your carbs
are killing you!
Julie Laulis
Last show I watched not on my network(s):
" House of Cards " on Netflix; " Downton Abbey " on PBS
- so sad it is over!
What was your first job? One month after college
graduation, I started as a CSR for Hauser Communications
at Arlington Cable Partners in Virginia. Being
exposed to Gus Hauser and John Evans early in my
30
cablefaxmag.com
career helped jump start my learning! Lucky me!
Favorite charity event you work with: Every year,
our SVP of sales and marketing rewards our best sales
people (inbound, business services and ad sales) with
an incentive trip. Regardless of the trip location, Cable
ONE volunteers a day to help the local community in
some way. We might clean schoolyards, lay tile in classrooms
or buy and pack food boxes for a local food bank.
It is this " giving back " in the midst of such a " perk "
that feels so right. We say " Cable ONE Cares " and our
actions live up to our words.
What excites you most about DOCSIS 3.1? Actually,
I think I am most excited about Full Duplex 3.1. It feels
like " outsiders " have been prognosticating the demise
of cable companies for years and we, as an industry,
keep coming up with new " legs " that help to keep our
products superior. Thanks Cable Labs! Leveraging what
we have already invested in for a longer period of time
is a win-win for us and our customers!
My cable industry mentor and why: I have been
fortunate to work for John Evans and Gus Hauser early
in my career, then Glenn Jones (and many other " Jonesites " )
in the middle of my career and now, as I have
been at Cable ONE almost 17 years, Tom Might. Working
with and for Tom has been such a blessing to me.
Professionally, he guides, pushes, and teaches me. He
also spends time (every week - yes, I need that much
mentoring!) on topics that help me in all of my roles,
not just the one I have at Cable ONE. I am immensely
indebted to him and thankful for his gift of time.
12. POWER PLAYER
Rebecca Schulte
Title: President, CSN Mid-Atlantic
Years in Cable: 18
Education: BA, California State University, Long Beach
One Word that Best Describes Me: Curious
Schulte has overseen tremendous growth and innovation
in all facets of the network's operation. Her
leadership and vision in the areas of programming,
marketing, sales, production, team partnerships and
digital media has placed CSN Mid-Atlantic among the
most respected and best-performing regional sports
networks in the nation. One of Schulte's key achievements
has been the launch and development of the
network's digital properties.
Virtual reality is: The future
What was your first job?
TV/movie extra
Favorite charity event you
work with: Comcast Cares
Day. It's a great opportunity
to do meaningful work with
colleagues.
" Star Trek " celebrates its 50th Anniversary this
year. So if Mr. Spock's motto is " Live Long and
Prosper, " mine is... Evolve and innovate to Prosper.
If this election year was a reality TV series, it
would be called: " The Circus. " I know that's already
taken, but it's perfect.
My favorite hashtag is: #CapitalsTalk
May 2016
Best way to spend a Saturday night: With my son,
Ryan, and husband, Ray.
Hoverboard, driverless car or drone: Drone, because
of the great video it is capable of producing.
I watch the majority of programming on this
device: TV
My favorite newfound hobby: VR
Favorite vacation spot: Los Angeles, it's my hometown.
My typical breakfast is: Coffee
My Starbucks order: Dunkin' Donuts
13. THE DRIVER'S
SEAT
James Samaha
Title: SVP Freedom Region,
Comcast Cable
Years in Cable: More than
10 in cable, more than
23 in telecom
Education: MBA, New York University Stern School of
Business; BS, engineering, Cornell University
One Word that Best Describes Me: Focused
Taking the helm for the Freedom Region's 2 million
customers and 5,500 employees would be a sufficient
challenge for anyone. Add to that the historic World
Meeting of Families, momentous Philadelphia franchise
renewal and Comcast's focus on customer service
transformation and it is clear that Samaha accomplished
an impressive task in just the past year. Away
from work, the devoted family man jokes his free time is
fully occupied shuttling his children to and from various
sporting events and music lessons.
14. THE MCLAUGHLIN GROUP
Mary McLaughlin
Title: Regional SVP, Beltway
Region, Comcast Cable
Years in Cable: 22
Education: Bridgewater State
College; Suffolk University Law
School
One Word that Best Describes
Me: Passionate
McLaughlin's mantra is, " There's no substitute for hard
work, " and she exemplifies this in her driven approach,
constantly encouraging and inspiring those around her
to do the same. She is committed to make sure the
customer experience is a positive one. A champion of
diversity, McLaughlin is one of three female Regional
SVPs for Comcast's Northeast Division.
15. COLLINSPORT
Timothy P Collins
Title: Regional SVP, Heartland
Region, Comcast Cable
Years in Cable: 33
Education: BBA, University
of Michigan Business School;
JD, Wayne State University
Law School
One Word that Best Describes Me: Strategic
