Hart, who chaired Expo in Atlanta in 2013, will lead the committee that builds the Expo Fall Technical Forum workshops at the show. He succeeds the co-chairs of Expo 2017, Altice USA Vice Chairman, Business Development - Network and Technology Services, Terry Cordova and Charter Communications Executive Vice President, Engineering and Information Technology, Jim Blackley.
Expo 2018 will be conducted Monday, Oct. 22 through Thursday, Oct. 25, at the Georgia World Congress Center. The Fall Technical Forum is a joint production of the SCTE/ISBE, the NCTA, and CableLabs.
"Year in and year out, Kevin Hart's vision, commitment to excellence, and technology expertise have helped Cox be among the very best at transforming the lives of consumers," said Mark Dzuban, president and CEO of the SCTE/ISBE. "Kevin's leadership will be key to shaping an Expo program that will help to drive deeper understanding of the value of training, standards, and thought leadership as catalysts for improvement in operators' bottom lines."
"In a rapidly shifting media landscape, it's essential for cable to continue to prepare the technology workforce for the changes ahead," said Hart. "I look forward to working with the Cable-Tec Expo 2018 Program Committee to create an agenda that will provide SCTE/ISBE members and Expo attendees with the technical knowledge and industry insights they need to maintain our competitive edge well into the future."
Prior to joining Cox, Hart worked for Clearwire, Level 3 Communications, Capgemini Consulting and SBC Communications.
