BCI Broadband has hired Vin Zachariah as its senior vice president of residential services while Diane Quennoz has joined the executive team as senior vice president of marketing.

Starting today, both Zachariah and Quennoz report to BCI Broadband CEO and President Jeffrey DeMond.

"The whole BCI team is delighted to welcome Vin and Diane to our family of seasoned executives," DeMond said. "They each bring tremendous depth and breadth of experience to our new venture and their energy, professionalism and sense of urgency will contribute immediately to our plan to build a modern, next-generation broadband company."

Zachariah will lead residential services business unit at BCI, where he will have overall responsibility for field operations and fulfillment of residential services.

He joined BCI from Mediacom Communications where he was senior vice president, field operations and fulfillment, with responsibility for 1.2 million customers in 22 states. 

Prior to Mediacom he held senior operations leadership positions over a span of eight years at Time Warner Cable, most recently as a regional vice president. His prior experience includes corporate finance and strategy roles at Pinnacle Towers/Global Signal, and three years in investment banking at Salomon Smith Barney. 

Quennoz joined BCI Broadband from Insight Communications, which was bought by Time Warner Cable last year.  At Insight she was vice president, marketing and customer experience.  She will lead all Marketing functions and will have overall responsibility for marketing, branding and product development. 

At Time Warner Cable she led the marketing and sales integration of Insight's 750,000 customers into Time Warner Cable.  Prior to Insight, Quennoz held senior marketing positions within telecom, technology and consumer electronics companies, most recently at Frontier Communications.

BCI Broadband was founded last year by DeMond and executive vice president and chief financial officer Andrew Kober, both formerly with Bresnan Communications, with the backing of  BBH Capital Partners (BBHCP), a private equity fund sponsored by Brown Brothers Harriman & Co.

As part of its aggressive growth plan, last month BCI announced it was buying James Cable after it announced in January it was buying Allegiance Communications
