Time Warner Cable promotes Keib, Gray
Time Warner Cable said today that John Keib will take over the reins as president of its Central New York Division, while David Gray was promoted to regional vice president of sales and marketing for the New York City Region.
Keib takes over for Mary Cotter, who announced her retirement earlier this year after a 30-year stint in the cable industry.
Keib’s promotion was announced by Executive Vice President Bill Goetz, who oversees Time Warner Cable’s operations throughout Upstate New York and the Northeast.
In his new position, Keib will lead a division that serves more than 625,000 customers with video, high-speed data and digital phone service across the Southern Tier, Central and Northern New York State. More than 1,500 division employees serve customers from 30 office locations, with division headquarters located in East Syracuse.
Keib joined Time Warner Cable in 1998 and has most recently served as regional vice president of marketing and sales for the company’s New York City Region, after having served in that same capacity for its Southern California Region (Los Angeles/San Diego) in 2007.
He last worked in Central New York in 2006 as regional vice president of marketing and sales, overseeing projects for multiple Time Warner Cable divisions (Syracuse, Binghamton, Rochester, Albany and Buffalo, N.Y.; and Portland, Maine) including the introduction of digital phone and the launch of bundled packages.
Keib previously served as vice president of marketing and sales for the Syracuse Division from 2002-05, responsible for functions including teleservices, direct sales, training and local programming, including the launch of Time Warner Cable Sports 26.
Goetz said, “Based on these early successes in the Syracuse Division, as well as his efforts over the past two years in both Los Angeles and New York City - two very challenging and competitive markets - John has quickly and quietly gained the admiration of our company’s executive leadership.”
Gray previously served as regional vice president of sales and marketing for the company’s Northeast Region, where he oversaw the promotion and growth of the company’s video, data and voice products, including bundling and pricing strategies, acquisition and retention campaigns, retail channels, sales training initiatives and consumer research.
Gray, associated with the company for 19 years, is a two-time recipient of the Golden Truffle Award, Time Warner Cable’s top marketing honor, and several other awards for excellence in marketing from CTAM and NAMIC.
