Organizational Changes Further Enable Rapid Delivery to Consistently Produce Quality Products and Tools for Customers
STAMFORD, Conn. – Charter Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ:CHTR) today announced the promotions of Jodi Robinson to EVP, Digital Platforms and Jake Perlman to EVP, Software Development & IT. In her new role, Robinson will oversee the significant expansion of the Digital Platforms organization, which currently leads video product management, customer self-service platforms, the internal design agency, and the data platforms organization. Additionally, employee-facing experiences that support customer service representatives and field technicians, and customer online ordering and video engineering, will move under Robinson. Perlman will unify and optimize the previously separate shared enterprise software development, infrastructure, and deployment processes with the IT and Software Engineering organizations.
“We are experiencing a rapid transformation in the technology that customers and employees use,” said Rich DiGeronimo, Charter’s Chief Product and Technology Officer, to whom Robinson and Perlman report. “We must continually refine and improve our products to differentiate and to meet and exceed the expectations of our customers and employees.”
He continued: “Under Jodi’s leadership, the Digital Platforms team has produced great success with the Spectrum TV App along with driving adoption and increasing customer satisfaction for Spectrum’s top-rated self-support application, the My Spectrum App. Expanding our award-winning digital practices to employee-facing experiences will increase efficiency and elevate our ability to serve the needs of our customers. Jake brings a broad range of software development experience to the IT function, with the most recent example of developing the company’s Advanced Home WiFi product. By uniting IT and the software engineering teams, Jake will be able to drive top-notch development practices that will power best in-class experiences for our customers, as well as our employees who serve them. I am confident that Jake and Jodi’s leadership will continue to accelerate our collective success.”
Robinson has overseen the Digital Platforms organization since 2019 and the User Experience Design and Development organization since she joined Charter as a Senior Vice President in 2014.
