Why Him? As TWC finalized its move toward centralizing operations, Goetz, an alumni of the CabeFAX 100’s Regional list, took on a new post that puts him squarely at the helm of the MSO’s largest line of business representing $18 billion in annual revenue. His oversight touches marketing, sales, customer care and tech ops for the business. Goetz is a keen supporter of employee development and mentoring—particularly leadership development opportunities for women—and he commits the resources to back it up. He’s also a dedicated family man, a big fan of golf and is happy anywhere near the water.
