Title: EVP, Content Acquisition, Comcast

Education: BA, Oberlin; MA, Princeton

Why Him? Steering the strategic direction of Comcast’s ever-vast content portfolio is job No. 1 for Rigdon, who quietly arrived in Philadelphia a year ago from Charter to replace Matt Bond amid the NBCU executive shuffle.

In cable, he’s the guy you need to see. And probably more than once.

Year Ahead: As Comcast’s products and services become increasingly integrated, Rigdon will be working overtime to assure content aggregation is smooth across platforms.
