Rutledge Magic Rubbing Off On Charter Communication

As the new COO of Charter, Tom Rutledge had a lot on his plate when he started at the end of 2011.It seems that whatever skills he brought over from Cablevision has paid off.  With Rutledge at the helm, Charter announced  "an increase of video customers in the first quarter of 20,000 subscribers, the first time the cable company has reached that milestone in about five years."  Make that a triple play growth as high speed and telco subscriptions also grew for the quarter too.

Whether it was the direct impact he had or simply the energy he brought to his new company, Charter is looking recharged, coordinated, and ready to tackle its mission.  The hope is that the momentum continues and it is not an anomaly to future subscription losses.
