Allan Block

Title: Chairman of the Board, Buckeye Cablevision & Block Communications

Years in Cable: 31

Education: University of Pennsylvania

Last year marked Buckeye’s 50th anniversary so Block, grandson of late founder Paul Block, made sure things were celebrated in style with a yearlong event of celebrations, giveaways and special events, honoring the milestone. One was the gift of free service to Rev. John E. Roberts (and his church) for a year in honor of Roberts being Buckeye’s first customer back in 1965.
