Cogeco names CEO of Canadian cable unit
Cogeco Cable has appointed Louise St-Pierre president and chief executive officer of Cogeco Cable Canada.
Edward Holleran continues to lead Atlantic Broadband, which Cogeco bought at the beginning of the year. Louis Audet remains as the president and CEO of the overall organization.
St-Pierre joined Cogeco Cable in 1999 as vice president and chief information officer. In the most recent in a series of promotions, she was senior vice president, residential services, a position in which she served for the last four years.
Prior to joining Cogeco Cable, St-Pierre managed and delivered consulting services at DMR in Quebec, New Brunswick and Alberta. Earlier, she had worked at IBM.
As president and CEO of Cogeco Cable, St-Pierre will be responsible for overseeing the operations of the second largest cable operator in Ontario and Quebec.
"In her more than fourteen years with the company, Louise has achieved a great deal and proven herself as an excellent leader," said Audet. "The decision to entrust Louise with the responsibilities of managing our Canadian cable operations was a unanimous one, and in so doing, decision making is brought closer to the field of operations to better facilitate excellence in product innovation and customer service, and further enhance our financial performance. With the addition of new members to the Cogeco Cable family, following two acquisitions made in the past seven months, the time had come to adapt our corporate structure to our new reality. This nomination and the concomitant adjustment to our organizational structure will allow us to accelerate the growth opportunities within each of Cogeco Cable's operating companies, better serve our customers and create new career opportunities for members of our team," concluded Audet.
The other acquisition Audet referred to was the purchase of PEER 1 Hosting.
