Cablefax The Magazine - May 2016 - 54

79. THE DECISION MAKER
Luis Silberwasser
Title: President, Telemundo Network
Number of Years in Cable: 18 years
Education: MBA, Harvard Business School; BA,
industrial engineering, GA Institute of Technology
An expert on the U.S. Hispanic and Latin American
markets, Silberwasser is leading positive
change at Telemundo, punctuated by the success
of the network's weeknight Super Series,
and its amplified coverage of the Presidential
election, including the Noticias Telemundo
news app, and #YoDecido, its partnership with
NBC News to inform and empower Hispanic
voters nationwide with particular emphasis on
digital platforms to reach younger voters.
80. GRAND SLAM
Ken Solomon
Title: President,
Tennis Channel
Years in Cable:
More than 25
Education: UCLA
One Word that
Best Describes Me:
Lucky
Talk about smashing the serve. After years of fighting to get Tennis
Channel broader carriage, Solomon just got a major assist via
Sinclair Broadcast Group's $350 million purchase of the network.
Even before the deal closed, Sinclair had already used retrans
contracts with various MVPDs to secure additional carriage for
Tennis. The partnership nearly doubles the network's reach
across America, expanding Tennis in to 50 million homes from 35
million. And Solomon isn't going anywhere, with terms of the deal
including the management team staying in place. Solomon's also
riding high after the successful rollout of Tennis Channel Plus,
with expansion plans underway for the OTT service.
What does the future look like for skinny bundles and flexible
packaging? Lots of permutations (but hopefully there's a fuzzy
yellow ball in there somewhere).
Virtual reality is... going to transform the tennis experience on
television.
What excites you most about DOCSIS 3.1? It's like a plane-I'm
thrilled it flies but don't need to know how.
My cable industry mentor and why: Bud Collins, a mentor for
everyone in sports television
My personal theme song: " I Won't Back Down " by Tom Petty
My typical breakfast: Green juice, espresso, two eggs, white
truffle oil, dried red pepper, mozzarella and avocado on a
whole-wheat tortilla ■
54
cablefaxmag.com
Last show I watched not on my
network(s): " The Man in the High Castle "
What was your first job? Selling office
equipment in Colombia
Favorite charity event you work with:
My kids' school auction
If this election year was a reality TV
series, it would be called... " Crash and
Burn "
What should cable do to improve its
image? Better and more programming in
Spanish
Best way to spend a Saturday night:
Dinner and a movie
New favorite binge: Hershey's almond kisses
I watch the majority of programming on this
device: TV
Favorite vacation spot: Colombia
My typical breakfast is:
Yogurt and coffee
My Starbucks order: Flat White ■
81. HEAD IN THE CLOUDS
Conrad Clemson
Title: SVP & GM, Service Provider Video Software
& Solutions Group, Cisco
Number of Years in Cable: 20+
Education: BS in physics from College of William and
Mary; graduate studies at the University of Virginia.
One Word that Best Describes Me: Passionate
Yvette Kanouff
Title: SVP & GM, Service Provider Video
Software & Solutions Group, Cisco
Years in Cable: 20+
Education: Master's, mathematics with
a focus on compression, University of
Central Florida
One Word that Best Describes Me: Driven
The recently promoted Clemson joins seasoned tech wizard Kanouff in directing
the strategy and development of Cisco's video software portfolio. Together the
two are leading Cisco's video software portfolio, from content security to delivery
of OTT content and services. Look for Clemson and Kanouff to focus this year
on extending the cloud migration across the portfolio, streamlining functions
required to produce and deliver multiscreen video, and applying a data science
discipline to protect pay TV and content providers' valuable content.
Conrad Clemson
Favorite charity you work with: Kauai Humane Society
My first job: Diagnostic programmer for CRTs for fault tolerant mini-computers.
Yvette Kanouff
What excites you most about DOCSIS 3.1? More Bandwidth! But I am even
more excited about symmetric DOCSIS and remote PHY.
Hoverboard, driverless car or drone: Driverless car ■
