STAMFORD, Conn. — Charter Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: CHTR) today announced that industry veteran and Senior Executive Vice President David Ellen will transition to an advisory role to Charter’s President and CEO Chris Winfrey beginning December 1.

“I have spent over 20 years working in this incredible industry and the last seven here at Charter for which I am very grateful,” said Mr. Ellen. “I look forward to continuing to help advance its very bright future in this new advisory capacity, while also devoting more time and energy to my outside interests including nonprofit work and teaching.”
Mr. Ellen’s additional nonprofit work includes service as President of the Board of Trustees for Hudson Guild and Board Chair of Open Squash, both headquartered in New York City. In the fall of 2024, he will begin adjunct teaching at New York University’s Wagner School of Public Service.

I am pleased David will continue to support me and Charter in an advisory role and wish him well as he pursues his outside endeavors.”
