EVP/CFO, Comcast Cable

Comcast elevated its first female EVP to the role of CFO this summer. And it’s a well-deserved promotion. With more than two decades of experience at Comcast, Avgiris has most recently overseen data and communications, including Comcast’s Xfinity Internet, Xfinity Voice and consumer wireless businesses. She now oversees the company’s $40 billion business, reporting directly to CEO Neil Smit.

What’s your favorite part of your job?
As the new CFO of the cable division, I have the purview of a $40B business. I see how the individual product lines come together and how I can make strategic decisions to benefit our financial position in a competitive marketplace.
How do you define success in the workplace?
Success can be measured in many ways—making an impact, delivering on commitments. But success is most gratifying when others take up the cause you are championing because your passion becomes their passion.
Who would you want to swap jobs with for a month and why?

I would swap places with one of judges on “The Voice.” I love music and would pick more eclectic song choices for my team. Besides, who wouldn’t want to do duet with Adam Levine?
