The National Cable & Telecommunications Association has retained executive search firm Korn Ferry once again to help find the next head of the cable organization.

Nels Olson, managing director of the Easter Region will head up the search. Anyone looking to throw their name in the hat can contact him at or (202) 822-9444.
