I am pleased to announce that Jennifer Yohe Wagner, our Vice President of Strategic Business Procurement, has been named the winner of the 2012 Women in Technology Award by Women in Cable Telecommunications, the Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers and Communications Technology magazine. The award, announced annually, acknowledges the achievements of a woman who has made an impressive contribution to the cable telecommunications industry. Jennifer’s strong work ethic and long list of accomplishments make her an incredibly well-deserving recipient of this distinguished award.

With her extensive background in cable-related organizations, we were thrilled to have Jennifer join our team in October 2007. Through strong internal and external partnerships, and her relentless negotiation of large complex technology deals, she delivers the desired corporate results and savings. Her experience in core infrastructure hardware and software deals certainly makes her a leader in the cable procurement industry. When she is not working on the front-line with top technology providers, she takes time to mentor rising professionals in the industry. Her constant leadership and willingness to share her knowledge has been invaluable to our company.
