Comcast Business has hired former Level 3 exec Kalyn Hove as its new vice president for the Twin Cities Region.
In her new job, Hove will provide operational and strategic leadership for all aspects of the region’s Comcast Business team, which includes operations in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Missouri and Kansas. Comcast Business provides communication solutions to organizations of all sizes including business Internet, Ethernet, television and voice services.
“We’re pleased to have Kalyn joining our team as the new leader for our rapidly expanding Comcast Business operations,” said Jeff Freyer, Comcast Twin Cities Region vice president “Kalyn has extensive leadership experience and a strong track record of consistently surpassing financial, operational and customer satisfaction goals. Throughout her career, she has shown the proven skills and creativity to generate results and execute on effective growth strategies in the business-to-business space.”
Hove most recently worked as global vice president for collaboration at Level 3, formerly Global Crossing. Her responsibilities included direct line management of more than 125 sales, support, provisioning, on boarding, pricing, engineering and field marketing personnel, as well as compensation design, revenue growth and sales objectives for nearly 6,000 customers.
In its first quarter earnings report last month, Comcast’s business service revenue increased 24 percent to $917 million and was approaching a run rate of $4 billion.
