As Cablevision has expanded its WiFi networks and services over the past 12 months, Ip and his team have worked on initiatives such as the launch of WiFi phone service Freewheel. In fact, Ip will play a key role as Cablevision looks to build synergies with emerging technology entrepreneurs and companies to enhance its tech platform and improve the customer experience. When it comes to diversity, cable is at a point of transition, “redefining itself in line with consumer and business needs,” he says.

Best business advice you’ve received?

What has gotten you to where you are today won’t necessarily get you where you want to go next. As your goals change, constantly be on the lookout for opportunities to remake yourself to fit your evolving vision.

How do you define success?

No one will ever tell you when you have succeeded. Ultimately, you are the purveyor of whether you’ve been successful.  For me, success means moving the needle, whether it’s an inch or a mile. If you’re leaning forward and pushing the agenda, you’re succeeding every day.

How can cable better support diversity?

The cable industry is at a point of transition, redefining itself in line with consumer and business needs. As an industry, we must recognize that the best viewpoints will not necessarily come from within the industry. To this end, it is crucial that we prioritize gathering and incorporating multi-cultural input, across people, cultures and industries.
