Kyle McSlarrow, president and CEO of the National Cable & Telecommunications Association (NCTA) since March 1, 2005, plans to depart his position in the spring of 2011.
McSlarrow offered the following statement:
“Serving at NCTA has been a great honor, a wonderful learning experience, and personally and professionally rewarding. I have been proud to represent the cable industry, which I now regard as my home. I am truly grateful to the NCTA Board for having given me this opportunity and for their strong leadership and support.
“Over the last several months, I have discussed with members of the NCTA Board my interest in transitioning to another role in our industry that would allow me to work more fully on business and operating activities.
“Though I believe this is the right decision for me and my family, it was not an easy one. I regard the NCTA staff not just as professionals comprising the best in our business, but also as close personal friends and colleagues. I’m hoping to have the opportunity moving forward to continue collaborating with them, and to assist my successor at NCTA, in the important work we do for our industry.”
