EVP & Chief Communications Officer

Time Warner Cable

When the two largest cable companies in the country decide to merge, you can bet the chief communications officer has her hands full. But through it all, you can count on East for a smile and a sincere “how do you do?” She also keeps all of her volunteer commitments going, from serving on the boards of T. Howard and the Arthur Page Society to her championing of WICT. She defines success “by the positive impact of my words and actions on others.”

When not in the office, where are we most likely to find you?

With my toes in the sand.
