Cox Names Barlik COO

Cox Communications named Len Barlik EVP and chief operating officer of the cable company. He replaces Jill Campbell, who was promoted to parent Cox Enterprises earlier this month.

Barlik joined Cox in 2011 as executive vice president of product management and development. During his tenure, Cox launched several products such as Contour, the company’s flagship video product, Gigabit broadband speeds for residential customers and the Homelife home security and automation portfolio. Most recently, he served as chief human resources officer where he realigned leadership, processes and tools to better equip the evolving workforce to meet customer needs, Cox said.

As executive vice president and chief operations officer, Barlik will oversee field operations, customer experience, care operations, field service strategy, operations process management and public affairs.
