Matt Bond

Title: EVP, Content Distribution, NBCU

Years in Cable: 13 (CableFAX estimate)

Education: BS, BA, University of Denver; JD, University of Colorado

Why Him? As EVP of content distribution following Comcast’s acquisition of NBCU, Bond remains the right hand of CEO Steve Burke, with whom he’s worked for a decade. In addition to an instrumental role in development and oversight of the company’s windowing strategy and integration of premium video on demand, he is charged with ensuring NBCU customers have plenty of high-tech toys to keep them from straying.

Take A Hike: When he’s not dotting distribution deals for NBCU, Bond thinks it’s amusing to hike Colorado’s 14,000-foot peaks. He also surfs… and enjoys fly-fishing.

Year Ahead: Bond’s tenure seems secure as he leads the company’s authentication of the Olympics on cable through 2020, including the 2012 summer games in London.

Favorite meal I can also prepare myself: Corona Light

Favorite restaurant: Saltwater Cowboys, Saint Augustine, Fla.
 
Favorite “going out” towns: New Orleans, Los Angeles
 
Best technique for deterring time-wasting office visits from co-workers: None, I like company.
 
Favorite Starbucks order: Venti Latte
 
Favorite vacation spot: my back deck
 
Guilty TV pleasure: “Warehouse 13”
 
When I look at my cable set-top box, I can’t help but think: There’s a cool box in there waiting to get out.
