Rahimi To Leave Mediacom

Mediacom Communications said Friday senior vice president of marketing and consumer services Michael Rahimi will leave the small market MSO next month to start his own cable consulting business in New York.
Rahimi, a veteran cable executive since the 1970s, joined Mediacom about six years ago. A well respected marketer, Rahimi has been active in the Cable & Telecommunications Association for Marketing (CTAM) and serves on the CTAM board of directors.
"Over the past six years, Mike has been an integral part of our senior leadership team," Mediacom chairman and CEO Rocco Commisso said in a statement. "His vision, energy and leadership have helped Mediacom achieve tremendous customer growth in both our high-speed Internet and phone product lines. On behalf of all Mediacom employees, I want to thank Mike for his contributions and wish him all the best in the next phase of his life and career."
The move comes as Mediacom nears becoming a private company. In November the company approved a buyout proposal from Commisso where he would purchase the remaining shares in the company he does not already own for $8.75 each. In a proxy statement filed Feb. 2, Mediacom said it will hold a special meeting of shareholders to vote on the proposal on March 4.
Mediacom said in a statement that Rahimi's last day with the company will be March 31.
