Comcast announced this morning that it has promoted Jeff Buzzelli to senior vice president of business services for the company’s Northeast division.

Prior to his promotion, Buzzelli spent the past four years as vice president of business services for Comcast’s Greater Chicago Region, where he nearly tripled revenue while also expanding the company’s mid-market and enterprise presence.

While in Chicago, he led the acquisition and integration of CIMCO Communications into the Chicago market, allowing the company to grow and compete more effectively. Buzzelli was twice recognized with the company’s President’s Club Award, and he and his team played an integral role in helping the Greater Chicago Region achieve “System of the Year” status in the company’s internal recognition program.

In his new role, Buzzelli will be directly responsible for developing, facilitating and implementing strategies aimed at growing Comcast Business Class across 14 northeastern states, from Maine through Virginia and the District of Columbia.

“Jeff’s extensive experience and proven track record of delivering exceptional results will be instrumental as we continue expanding Business Services’ market position, while providing our commercial customers with top-notch, end-to-end service,” said Kevin Casey, president of Comcast’s Northeast Division. “In addition, Jeff’s leadership style and commitment to teamwork and inclusiveness has already been an inspiration to his team and our entire division.”

Before joining Comcast, Buzzelli held executive positions within sales, marketing and operations at AT&T, GTE/Verizon and Level 3.

“I’m very excited about this new role and look forward to helping businesses across Comcast’s Northeast Division find the right technology solutions to achieve their goals,” Buzzelli said. “Our success as a company depends on the success of the clients we serve, and we are committed to providing them with innovative products and services, coupled with personalized, dedicated support when they need it.”

Business services have been on an upward arc for Comcast over the past few years and have been helped along that trajectory with last year’s launch of metro Ethernet services.

In its third-quarter earnings last month, Comcast’s business services division posted a 34 percent increase in revenue compared to the same quarter a year ago.
