David L. Cohen

Years in Cable: 16

Education: Swarthmore College, JD; University of PA Law School

Cohen works tirelessly to evolve perceptions of Comcast. He’s been the driving force behind the launch and growth of broadband adoption program Internet Essentials since 2011. The program has connected four million low-income Americans from one million households since its launch. He’s also dedicating himself to doing everything possible to close the digital divide, working with nonprofits like the Boys and Girls Clubs of America, United Way and City Year to move toward these goals. Harris cuts through the legal-ese that naturally surrounds the day-to-day operations of an entertainment behemoth, and is a front-line champion for all NBCU business dealings. Bringing more than 35 years of experience in strategic communications to the table, Rudnay was invaluable in the Dreamworks Animation and NBCU transactions, and has been celebrated by her peers for her leadership in her field—finding her name on Cablefax’s “Most Powerful Women” list for the last seven years.
