Motto I Live By: “Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.” –Winston Churchill

McLaughlin’s team of several thousand employees ranked as a 2018’s Top Workplace in DC by The Washington Post and, under McLaughlin’s leadership, the Beltway Region’s Comcast Business team made multimillion-dollar investments in several cities to expand the company’s fiber-based network. In addition, the region’s military hiring initiatives expanded through a partnership with the Dover Air Force Base to launch a class of virtual care agents comprised of residents of Delaware and military reservists, veterans and their spouses.

Best brand campaign you’ve seen lately? I love the new Xfinity ads with Amy Poehler, especially the one with her dog in the Xfinity Store.

How do you stay motivated in your job? I try to always remember that it is an honor to have my job, and I am lucky to be able to come to work each day and work with a great team to help make a difference for our customers.

Favorite podcast: I like “This Is 50” because it features content that resonates with where I am in life now.

What quality do you look for when promoting someone? It really is a combination of ambition and intellect.
