Suddenlink Names Jerry Dow Chief Marketing and Sales Officer

Suddenlink Communications has reached outside the cable industry to fill its newly created position of chief marketing and sales officer.

The telecommunications provider has hired Jerry Dow, most recently a member of the leadership team at Vanguard Car Rental, where he was responsible for marketing, advertising, reservations and e-commerce applications for both National and Alamo rental car brands. He has experience in multiple industries, including a stint in marketing and branding at United Airlines during the toughest time in that business' history: the post 9/11 bankruptcy.

Dow will work with members of the corporate and regional marketing teams on all marketing, promotion and sales activities for the company.
