It’s all about the last mile. At press time Charter was within a whisper of finalizing its $56 billion purchase of Time Warner Cable, a quest that’s kept Marcus and Jain staples in the business headlines for more than a year and no doubt will redefine the way consumers access television and the Internet in a new competitive landscape. Marcus, who’s sat atop the TWC empire for less than two years, has steered the company ably through a negotiations process that has defined his tenure thus far. Equally focused on the merger, while overseeing TWC operations, is Jain. The two have led the MSO through a performance turnaround that drew praise from Wall Street as TWC Maxx hits more markets.
