Veteran Industry Executive Jim Nuzzo Announces Plans to Retire in 2024
STAMFORD, Conn. — Charter Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: CHTR) today announced that industry veteran Jim Nuzzo, Executive Vice President, Business Planning and FP&A plans to retire in early 2024. Mr. Nuzzo joined Charter in 2014 to oversee business planning for Cable Operations, working closely with Field Operations, Customer Operations, Sales & Marketing, Network Operations, Technology and Product teams. His area of oversight expanded in 2019 to include Corporate Financial Planning & Analysis (FP&A) and Business Planning, Business Intelligence, Revenue Assurance and Corporate Services functions.
“Jim’s expertise and leadership in financial planning, forecasting and analysis have been invaluable over the past decade, and he has been a tremendous partner to the entire executive team,” said Chris Winfrey, Charter’s President & CEO. “Most notably, he led the development of Charter’s business planning playbook that was instrumental in navigating the complexities of the largest-ever cable integration with our purchase of Time Warner Cable and Bright House. The systems and processes he developed are central to our current day success.”
With his retirement, the company is promoting Paul Woelk to Senior Vice President, Business Planning for Cable Operations. Mr. Woelk will be responsible for all aspects of business planning for the cable operating teams, as well as the consolidation of budgets and forecasts companywide. Mr. Woelk will report to Adam Ray, EVP and Chief Commercial Officer. Additionally, the Corporate FP&A, Business Intelligence and Corporate Services teams which currently report to Mr. Nuzzo will now report to Jessica Fischer, Chief Financial Officer.
“Paul’s vast experience in and knowledge of our operations makes him well-suited for this expanded role,” said Mr. Ray. “I look forward to working with him and his team to continue building practical models that help guide our day-to-day operations to even greater success."
Mr. Woelk joined Charter in 2016 during the acquisition of Bright House Networks, originally as Vice President, Business Planning for Customer Operations. He moved to a similar role in Field Operations in 2019, and after taking on increasing levels of responsibility, was promoted to Group Vice President, Business Planning for Field Operations in 2021. Nearly a year ago, he joined the corporate Business Planning team in his current role of Group Vice President, Cable Operations Business Planning.
Previously, Mr. Woelk spent nearly nine years at Sprint in a variety of technology, product management and business development roles before joining Bright House Networks in 2009 in their network engineering and operations group.
