AOL tech exec joins Comcast
Schanz most recently served as AOL's EVP of network and data center operations.
Schanz, who reports to Comcast Corp. COO Steve Burke when he officially comes on board Jan. 16, will head up the company's engineering and network operations and technology strategy for deployment of new communications products and services. Preparing Comcast for service convergence will also come into play.
Schanz "will be a tremendous asset as we further deploy integrated video, high-speed Internet, voice and wireless services to customers," Burke said, in a statement.
