Despite the complicated job of overseeing Comcast’s largest region, Fore has led the way to becoming the No. 1 spot in the entire West Division. If his territory were a stand-alone corporation, it would rank No. 592 on the Fortune 1000 list. Fore launched Xfinity WiFi wireless Internet access and Comcast’s advanced X1 Platform in California, and doubled Internet speeds for several tiers of service. When searching for new hires both inside and outside the company, Fore says he wants competence, integrity, energy, decisiveness, independent thinking and the ability to have fun. What’s the one emerging trend that everyone in cable should be keeping an eye on? “TV Everywhere,” Fore says.
