PHOENIX--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Alan H. Silverman, Senior Vice President, General Counsel and Secretary of Cable One, Inc. (NYSE: CABO), has announced that he will retire from the Company effective December 29, 2017.
“For the past 32 years – after two years at Newsweek, where he also assisted The Washington Post Company (now Graham Holdings Company) in our initial foray into the business with our acquisition of Capital Cities Cable – we have been lucky to have Alan serve as our general counsel,” said Julia M. Laulis, President and Chief Executive Officer of Cable ONE. “Alan has been a trusted advisor and counsel, spearheading and overseeing numerous acquisitions, our spin-off from Graham Holdings Company and going public, and managing a legal department handling complex legal and regulatory issues with a high standard of excellence. Alan’s keen intellect, practical approach and wise counsel have been our good fortune, and we owe him a great debt of gratitude.”
Cable ONE is commencing a national search to find Silverman’s replacement, and Silverman will assist in the transition to his successor. While the search is underway, Matthew E.
