Comcast Feb. 21 announced the promotion of Jennifer Khoury to chief communications officer, succeeding D’Arcy Rudnay who is retiring after a 16-year career at Comcast, effective today.
Rudnay will remain with Comcast through the end of the year, serving as senior advisor to Comcast’s executive leadership team.
“D’Arcy created our corporate brand and has led our communications strategy through some of the most important milestones in our history,” CEO Brian Roberts said in a statement.
Those milestones included acquiring NBCUniversal, DreamWorks Animation and Sky and industry-shaping technological innovations such as selling and renting digital movies.
Roberts said Khoury is a “fantastic leader” and the “perfect person” to help communicate Comcast into the future.
Khoury joined Comcast more than 20 years ago and has been responsible for leading communications for Comcast Cable and has managed strategic communications for numerous campaigns and product and technology launches. She also oversees the corporate digital communications team, a function she built over the last decade to reflect the rapidly changing communications landscape.
Khoury reports to Roberts and Adam Miller, who was also promoted to senior EVP of Comcast Corp., in addition to his EVP role at NBCUniversal.
