Charter Names Former Amex Exec Kim Crawford Goodman to Board

Charter Communications said it has named former American Express executive Kim Crawford Goodman to its board of directors, rounding out the expanded board the company announced when it completed its purchase of Time Warner Cable and Bright House Networks in May. Crawford Goodman also will serve on the board’s audit committee.

“Kim is a proven leader and brings with her a wealth of experience and financial expertise that will be of tremendous value to the Charter Board,” said Charter chairman and CEO Tom Rutledge said in a statement. “With our thirteen-member board now in place and integration of the three companies well underway, Charter remains focused on delivering superior products at highly competitive prices, combined with outstanding service, driving operating and financial momentum and shareholder value.”

Crawford Goodman most recently served as president of Amex’s Global Business Travel and President of Merchant Services Americas.  Prior to joining American Express in 2007, she held senior executive positions at Dell Inc. including vice president of Software and Peripherals, vice president of Public Marketing and Transactional Sales, and vice president and general manager of Dell Networking.   Crawford Goodman began her career at Bain and Company where she served as Partner, Manager and a Consultant.

With the announcement, Crawford Goodman becomes the 13th member of Charter’s Board of Directors.   In May, Charter announced that Millicom CEO Mauricio Ramos was appointed to the Board. At that time Charter also announced that Advance/Newhouse had designated Steve Miron and Michael Newhouse; and that Liberty Broadband had designated John Malone, Greg Maffei and Balan Nair to serve on Charter’s Board. Rutledge was named Chairman and Eric Zinterhofer was appointed lead independent director.  It was also announced that Lance Conn, Craig Jacobson, Jay Markley and David Merritt would continue to serve on the Board.
