Commisso’s sharp business wit and meticulous management style has steered Mediacom through all types of weather in a storied career. Of late he’s been again dropping hints of wanting to sell off his business, a soaring indie success story in an increasingly consolidated industry with an estimated worth of $4.3 billion. At the same time, Commisso has been broadening his gaze on one of his other passions—soccer.
