SVP, Comcast Assurance & Advisory Team Comcast

In her relatively short tenure at Comcast, Hook has transformed the internal audit practice by expanding operations and initiatives to better serve all financial, technical, operations and strategic business partners across both legacy Comcast and NBCU functions. This new organization (now Comcast Assurance & Advisory Team, aka CAAT) is a trusted business advisor and a trail-blazing leader in developing talent both for the organization and the industry. How does this busy exec maintain a life balance? “If something is not a core competency that you can or should build, outsource it if it is a priority,” she says.

What’s your favorite part of your job?  
Building and developing relationships with people from all parts of the company is a real luxury afforded to internal audit professionals. I am able to learn something new every day about some part of the business, which keeps the job constantly interesting.
 
How do you define success in the workplace?  
Ultimately, it’s defined by the quality of the team that you build and continuously develop. If good talent that you have worked to develop will follow you and comes to work for you as you move through the organization or, better yet, rise to leadership roles in the organization, then you are doing well!
 
Best trick for maintaining the personal-professional life balance?  
It’s all about prioritizing and understanding your core competencies and how they need to be applied to the most important priorities at work and/or at home. If something is not a core competency that you can or should build, outsource it if it is a priority. If it’s not a priority, let it go for a while or delete it from your “to do” list altogether.  
 
Who would you want to swap jobs with for a month and why?
I’d like to be an engineer for a month and gain more of a firsthand understanding of how our network is built, how it runs, and what the day-to-day challenges are.
