American mass media company Comcast Corporation has promoted D’Arcy F. Rudnay, Arthur R. Block and Lawrence Salva from senior vice presidents to executive vice president level.
With her new title, Rudnay becomes the first woman in the company’s history to be named EVP.
By revenue, Comcast Corp. is the largest broadcasting and cable company in the world.
Rudnay, who also holds the company’s chief communications officer title, leads its brand management and external communications. In 2014, she was inducted into the PR Week PR Hall of Fame. Rudnay will report to Brian L. Roberts, chairman and CEO, and David L. Cohen, executive vice president of Comcast.
Block, Comcast Corporation’s general counsel and secretary as well as chief legal officer, has been with the company for 26 years. During his tenure, Block has served as lead in-house attorney for mergers and acquisitions, including those of AT&T Broadband and NBCUniversal. He reports directly to Cohen.
Salva, also chief accounting officer and controller, is responsible for all external financial reporting, as well as internal controls, planning and analysis. He reports directly to Michael Angelakis, vice chairman and CFO.
“D’Arcy has led us through game changing acquisitions, industry-shaping technological innovations and some of the most important milestones in our company’s history,” Roberts said. “She is a trusted partner to me and to the entire senior executive team, and we are fortunate to have her counsel, talent and passion as we look ahead to an exciting future.”
“Art has been an outstanding leader of our legal affairs team and has earned great respect from his colleagues and peers throughout our company and industry,” Cohen said. “He is a trusted advisor who provides excellent judgment, strong leadership and extensive industry experience and has led the company through some of its most complex transactions.”
“Larry has done a phenomenal job leading our accounting and reporting functions across the company,” Angelakis said. “For 15 years, he has been an integral part of Comcast’s financial success. He is a trusted advisor who is well-respected in our industry and always brings strategic thinking and leadership to his work.”
