Karen Buchholz

Talk about towering responsibilities. Buchholz is the executive in charge of the development of Comcast’s new Technology Center, a $1.5 billion, 60-story building adjacent to the company’s corporate headquarters that will be one of the nation’s tallest towers at its completion in early 2018. But this isn’t her first rodeo; she previously oversaw the development of the 56-story Comcast Center from 2005 through 2008. Facilities, aviation, diversity, political affairs, corporate services, business continuity, travel, security and sustainability all also fall under Buchholz’s purview.
