Comcast is reorganizing its DC govt affairs office, resulting in Kerry Knott leaving his post as svp, govt affairs. He’ll continue to provide strategic counsel to the MSO and the cable industry in a new consulting role through NCTA. "During this time of budget constraints and new challenges, we have decided to make some organizational changes…," said Comcast evp David Cohen. "Kerry and his team have done an excellent job building our relationships with leaders across the country." With Knott gone, there won’t be one person heading up the office in DC. Melissa Maxfield, vp federal govt affairs and Kathy Zachem vp, regulatory and state legislative affairs will both report to Cohen. Knott joined the company 5 years ago from Microsoft. Prior to that, he was former House Majority Leader Dick Armey‘s (R-TX) chief of staff. "I’ve truly enjoyed working at Comcast and helping the company navigate its way through many interesting legislative and regulatory issues. I will always appreciate the opportunity I’ve had to work at Comcast and I am looking forward to my continued consulting role with the cable industry," Knott said in a statement.
