Both new executive VPs will report to John Bickham, president and COO of Charter, effective July 1, and be based out of Charter’s Stamford, Conn., headquarters.

Ray had been regional VP of field operations for Charter’s Florida regions. In his new role, he will oversee Charter’s Spectrum Community Solutions business, which had a record sales year in 2019.

Srinivasan was senior VP in network operations for the past five years. Before that he was with Time Warner. He began his career at Sprint.

“Both Adam and Magesh are valued, successful leaders at Charter and their extensive expertise will help drive Charter’s continued success,” said Bickham.

“Adam is a veteran sales, marketing, and operations leader, skilled in negotiation and team building, which will position this new, dedicated organization well to capitalize on the sizable opportunity in the MDU marketplace,” Bickham said. “Magesh, an experienced network operator with a demonstrated history of delivering strong performance, brings the discipline and command necessary to ensure our network operates at optimal levels for our more than 29 million customers.”  

Weber will continue to report to Bickham through the transition.
