Former Charter Communications CTO Marwan Fawaz has founded a new advisory firm, Sarepta Advisors, that features several high-level former cable operator executives in its lineup.
In addition to Fawaz, who is a partner of the firm, Sarepta’s employees include Matt Bell, former vice president of IP network and development of Charter; Jim Buckley, former vice president of finance at Adelphia Communications; and George Kassas, former founder and executive vice president at Cedar Point Communications.
“The communications industry is going through unprecedented change, driven by disruption in how video is being delivered and consumed, and by the proliferation of wireless devices, which is creating new dynamics in the communications ecosystem. We partner with our clients to help them retain their competitive advantage and create value in this increasingly challenging environment,” said Fawaz.
Denver-based Sarepta’s core services are focused on strategy, technology roadmaps, customer experience, operational optimization and valuation/due diligence support. Its target client base ranges from global service, solution and content providers to venture capital and private equity firms.
