SCTE Taps Kent, Angelakis For Exec Ed Program

The Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers (SCTE) and Tuck Executive Education at Dartmouth announced that Jerry Kent, chairman and CEO of Suddenlink Communications, and Michael Angelakis, vice chairman and CFO of Comcast Corporation, will be featured presenters during the 2014 SCTE-Tuck Executive Leadership Program, which will be held May 4-9 on the Dartmouth College campus.

Kent and Angelakis will offer their perspectives on managing and growing successful businesses in today’s entertainment and communications environment during one-on-one discussions with members of the SCTE-Tuck faculty and question-and-answer sessions with program participants, the SCTE said.

“The opportunity for our participants to spend quality time engaging with and learning from the leading executives in our industry has been rated as one of the highlights of the SCTE-Tuck experience,” said Mark Dzuban, president and CEO of SCTE, in a statement. “We’re grateful to Jerry Kent and Mike Angelakis for committing the time and resources needed to help us further expand the learning opportunities available to the next generation of our industry’s leaders.”

Since the launch of the SCTE Leadership Institute in 2011, more than 200 executives and mid-level managers have completed the SCTE-Tuck program or a companion initiative, the SCTE-Georgia Tech Management Development Program, the SCTE said.

Guest lecturers at SCTE-Tuck programs have included Michael Powell, president and CEO of NCTA and former chairman of the Federal Communications Commission; Glenn Britt, the recently retired chairman and CEO of Time Warner Cable; and Neil Smit, president and CEO of Comcast Cable.
