President/CEO
Bend Broadband 

There’s no substitute for institutional knowledge. Tykeson literally grew up in cable, which perfectly positions her to understand the industry’s present and future. The only female on the current NCTA board, she’s a persistent voice for small operators and continually invests to insure her company remains relevant. Recent investments include a new co-location data center and the deployment of 700MHz to expand rural broadband. Her mentor, of course, is veteran cable man Don Tykeson, her father, who told Tykeson: “Don’t sweat the small stuff, make a decision and move on, and hire the best people you can and get out of the way.”
