STAMFORD, Conn. – Charter Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ:CHTR) today announced that Michelle Powell has been promoted to Senior Vice President, Customer Operations Business Integration. In this role she returns to Customer Operations, where she will function as the primary liaison between Product, Engineering and Information Technology. She will lead a team responsible for the integration of functional business requirements for internal and external customer-facing systems, products and applications for residential and small to medium-sized business customers.

“Michelle has an extensive knowledge of Charter’s operational and business processes. Her contributions over the years, and across multiple departments, have been impressive, and enabled us to execute with efficiency while growing Charter’s business,” said Cliff Hagan, Executive Vice President, Customer Operations, to whom she will report. “The environment in which we operate continues to evolve; consumers’ needs grow, new competition emerges and technology advances, and that requires a nimble mindset. I am confident that Michelle, in this new role, will continue to accelerate our collective success.”

Ms. Powell joined Charter in 2015 as Vice President, Business Integration where she developed a playbook to guide post-merger and Mobile Business integration efforts with responsibility for the implementation of Customer Operations’ cross-functional projects. Her duties were subsequently expanded to include all lines of business, and in 2021 she was promoted to Group Vice President, Business Integration. In 2022, she moved to Field Operations where she served as Group Vice President, Standards and Compliance.

Prior to Charter, Ms. Powell spent more than 20 years with Cablevision in business integration and billing roles.
