Comcast Promotes David Juliano to President, Comcast Online
Comcast announced today the promotion of David Juliano to president of Comcast Online, the division of Comcast Cable dedicated to offering residential and commercial High-Speed Internet services. Previously, Juliano served as the division's senior vice president and general manager. Since 1999, Comcast Online has grown under Juliano's leadership from 80 thousand customers to become the nation's number one broadband provider - with over 5.3 million customers and an award-winning, premier customer portal (www.Comcast.net). In 2003 alone, Comcast added 1.7 million broadband customers and grew revenue by $750 million to over $2.25 billion.
By combining Comcast's in-house expertise with strategic relationships, Juliano and his team have positioned Comcast as the company to turn to first for the latest broadband applications and technologies. Today, Comcast Online features an expanded offering that encompasses the latest networking and advanced applications for the connected home. The business is also adding new commercial products and services to its High-Speed Internet portfolio to further support this growing market.
"In an increasingly competitive environment, David Juliano has led Comcast
Online to continuously exceed expectations," said Dave Watson, executive vice
president of sales, marketing and customer service for Comcast. "David has established a talented, world-class team to help direct this business, and together, they have grown Comcast Online to become the nation's top broadband provider." "Their successes can be attributed in large part to their strategic decision early on to provide all of our broadband customers with more value, features and faster speeds to support the evolving Internet. As a result, Comcast is providing our customers with a unique and compelling combination of speed, content, innovative technology, and partnerships that deliver special member benefits," Watson continued.
Prior to joining Comcast Online in August 1999, Juliano spent eight years at Sony, followed by a 10-year stint in the cellular industry, where he held executive management roles in national operations, sales and marketing. About Comcast
