John Crowley, Comcast

Years in Cable: 38

Education: BA, Colby College; MBA, Southern New Hampshire University

Under Crowley’s watch in 2019, the Greater Chicago Region grew to 40 Xfinity Stores, increased internet speeds for the 17th time in 17 years and connected more than 380,000 low-income Chicagoans to broadband through Comcast’s low-income internet program Internet Essentials. Outside the office, he serves on the board of City Year Chicago, an education-focused, nonprofit organization that brings young people of all backgrounds together to work in public schools. It’s a role he takes seriously, inviting City Year corps members to visit Comcast GCR headquarters to meet with him and members of his senior leadership team to discuss career options and leadership.
