Comcast announced today that Valerie Gillespie was promoted to area vice president and general manager for East Tennessee.
Gillespie's area of responsibility comprises the entire region of East Tennessee – as well as northern Georgia and western portions of southern Virginia – including the Chattanooga area, where she previously served as vice president and general manager for the past three years.
She oversees all facets of Comcast operations, including technical, customer support, engineering and finance.
During her tenure at Chattanooga, Gillespie was responsible for the World of More initiative, which provided customers with more than 100 HD television channels and DOCSIS 3.0-based wideband speeds up to 105 Mbps.
Gillespie has been with Comcast for more than 15 years. Prior to Chattanooga, she was the vice president and general manager for the Comcast Augusta, Ga., system.
