Why Him? As Cablevision continues to reinvent itself, Sweeney works to ensure that everything the MSO does now ties into its long-term strategic vision. His track record speaks for itself. As the former SVP of e-media, he helped develop the Optimum streaming video app that has more than 1 million downloads and features navigation that is so good, the company opted to deploy a similar style across its entire digital video product suite. One advantage: Sweeney has worked almost everywhere in the company with touchpoints in ad sales, affiliate sales, programming, information systems, technology architecture, engineering, financial management, etc. No wonder he’s the guy keeping the strategic trains running on time.
