Following Bresnan’s transformation into Optimum West and likely soon something else (maybe Time Warner Cable given recent scuttle), its former management team is ready to pull the trigger on a new cable venture. Former Bresnan pres/CEO Jeff DeMond and former evp/CFO Andrew Kober are leading BCI Broadband, a partnership between the former Bresnan execs and BBH Capital, a private equity fund sponsored by Brown Bros Harriman & Co. First up is its acquisition of Allegiance Communications, which operates systems in AR, KS, TX and OK. Read on for what else is in store for the new cable venture.
