Creating a great product is absolutely essential to delivering an excellent customer experience. Our products need to be easy to get, easy to use, and easy to enjoy.  They should surprise and delight people.  And it’s my team’s job to never stop innovating to make them better.

We’ve spent the past several years building an incredible technology, product and engineering team that obsesses about these details.  They’ve created products like the X1 Platform, Cloud DVR and our mobile apps that millions of unique users access all day long.  

That’s why we couldn’t be happier that Chris Satchell is joining our team this month as EVP and Chief Product Officer. Chris has a passion for technology – he’s been coding since he was a kid and has grown an impressive career creating technologies that consumers love and designing products that they can’t live without.

His experience speaks for itself – from leading all consumer technology at Nike, to heading up research and development for IGT, a global leader in gaming, to running product development for Microsoft’s Interactive Entertainment Business (including Xbox).  Chris will be working closely with Sree Kotay, our EVP and Chief Software Architect as their teams collaborate to make our products even better and dream up new ideas.

There has never been a more exciting time in media and technology … and creating amazing products has never been more important to our company.  So we’re absolutely thrilled to have talent like Chris, Sree and their incredible teams to help us push the boundaries of where we go next.
