Cox Communications has announced that Jill Campbell, senior vice president of operations, will gain an expanded role to include oversight of the company’s entire field system. Previously, Campbell led field operations for Cox’s eastern division systems.
Cox’s Chief Operating Officer Leo Brennan said in a statement, "Jill’s 28 years with Cox and diverse roles in operations give her a broad and unique skill set for this important position."
Campbell’s expanded role includes responsibility for all of Cox’s field operations and the related Atlanta division support teams. Campbell has been with Cox since 1982, where she started as director of communications in the Oklahoma City system.
Also today, Cox announced it is consolidating its field systems from 11 to nine operations.
The San Diego and Orange Coast, California operations will join as one operating unit under the leadership of David Bialis, who previously oversaw the company’s western region operations.
Bill Geppert, senior vice president and general manager of the Cox San Diego system, will retire at the end of February.
Duffy Leone, senior vice president and general manager of Cox’s Orange Coast system, has been appointed senior vice president of operations for all of Cox’s California service area.
The Omaha/Sun Valley system will consolidate with Cox’s Kansas/Arkansas operations, under the leadership of senior vice president and general manager Janet Barnard.
David Blau, previously senior vice president and general manager for Cox’s Omaha operations, is transferring to Cox’s headquarters in Atlanta, where he will serve as vice president of New Growth and Development for the Corporate Strategy group.
The executive changes are effective February 1. The system consolidations are expected to be complete within the next few months.
