Time Warner Cable Names Lee SVP Mergers & Acquisitions

Time Warner Cable has named Christian Lee as senior vice president, mergers and acquisitions, following the retirement of 28-year company veteran Satish Adige.

In his new role, effective Dec. 31, Lee will oversee all M&A, investment, and acquisition integration activity for Time Warner Cable.

“Christian is an accomplished executive who brings a wealth of experience and leadership qualities to his new role,” said TWC executive vice president and chief financial officer Artie Minson in a statement. “Under his direction, we will continue to pursue our disciplined and strategic approach to investing and M&A.”

Minson also thanked Adige for his service, adding “Satish has been involved in many of Time Warner Cable’s most important transactions, and his mentorship of Christian over the last few years allows for a seamless transition in this important discipline. I speak for all Time Warner Cable employees in wishing Satish nothing but the best on his well-deserved retirement.”

Lee is currently vice president, investments, and has helped execute numerous transactions, including the spinoff of Time Warner Cable from Time Warner Inc. in 2009, the pending acquisition of DukeNet Communications, and acquisitions of Adelphia Communications, Insight Communications, NewWave Communications and NaviSite.

Prior to joining Time Warner Cable in 2007, Lee worked in the finance and acquisitions department at Time Warner Inc. and, before that, in the investment bank at Citigroup.
