Haase, Thurston and Oster are responsible for generating more than $2.5 billion in revenue, representing 35 million households. And thanks to the work put in by this trio, Comcast’s top categories—auto, political, digital and sports—experienced a bump in revenue and an increase in political share. The company’s I+ platform launched in new markets, enabling more local impressions for advertisers, and the team has leveraged addressability, interactivity and data insights to attract new advertisers to cable.
