The announcement comes two weeks after the MSO named former National Cable & Telecommunications Association CEO Kyle McSlarrow regional VP of its Mountain region--a post previously held by Lopez. Now based in Beaverton, Ore., Lopez succeeds Hank Fore, who was recently named regional SVP of the MSO's California operation.
Comcast said Lopez has held 12 different jobs at Comcast, and moved seven times for the company. Lopez began his cable career as a customer account executive in a Orange County, Calif., call center, and worked his way up to VP of finance at its California region before he was named a regional VP. "He often tells employees the story of how his many promotions and new responsibilities demonstrate that no matter what their current job, it's possible to continue to advance within the company with hard work and dedication," Comcast said in Wednesday's announcement.
Lopez will continue to report to Steve White, president of Comcast's West division. The Cal State Fullerton alumnus is a graduate of CTAM U, Comcast University's Executive Leadership Program, and he is a recipient of the NAMIC Luminary Award.
