Why Her? This is the woman who makes it all work—from allowing Optimum’s new user interface to work across multiple devices to establishing the necessary authentication for Cablevision’s nearly 50 Optimum TV to Go Offerings. And oh, the WiFi. Cablevision may not be the largest MSO in the country, but you couldn’t tell it from its impressive 75K installed Wifi hotspots. That’s more than any other operator.
