Why Them? It’s pretty simple. These Time Warner Cable stars keep shining brighter every year. Hobbs is one of the most competent operational gurus in the business, keeping close counsel with Glenn Britt as the MSO carefully rolls out innovative new products like Start Over. Marcus will take over as CFO of Time Warner Cable when John Martin retires at year-end. With Wall Street scrutinizing cable these days, he will have his work cut out for him. Both Hobbs and Marcus are good guys to have around.  MG
