SVP, Content Acquisition

Comcast Cable

Gaiski continues to play a key role in helping shape Comcast’s video offering as the company has grown from a midsize MSO serving 2.7 million customers to the nation’s largest cable operator. With a multibillion-dollar content acquisition budget, Gaiski helps negotiate and administer programming contracts, as well as coordinate filed operations and communications for Comcast’s three operating divisions. Gaiski and her team recently finalized a comprehensive distribution pact with Fox Networks to deliver a wide array of content to Comcast’s Xfinity TV customers.
