Comcast has named Steven White as President of the company’s west division. White will be the senior executive responsible for Comcast’s video, high speed Internet, and voice operations in Arizona, California, Colorado, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, New Mexico, Oregon, Washington, Utah and Wisconsin. He will lead a team of nearly 20,000 employees that serves more than six million customers. White will begin his role immediately, and will report directly to Dave Watson, EVP of operations for Comcast Cable.
White succeeds former west division President Brad Dusto, who has served in a number of leadership roles in his 17 years at Comcast, including chief technology officer. Dusto will stay on with company to work on key operational initiatives on a consultative basis.
Most recently, White served as the SVP of the California region. He holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from Indiana University. He and his wife Barbita will relocate from the Bay Area to the Denver Metro area in 2010.
