PHILADELPHIA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Comcast Business today announced the creation of a new segment that will target U.S. Government and Public Sector organizations, signifying the addition of U.S. Federal Government into Comcast Business’ growth strategy.
Under the leadership of recently-appointed Vice President of Federal Government Sales Kenneth (Ken) Folderauer, the new segment will be dedicated to providing premier communications solutions and unmatched service responsiveness to government agencies. In this role, Folderauer will lead the sales and go-to-market strategy while overseeing the development of a U.S. Public Sector-focused sales channel within Comcast Business.
“Since 2006, Comcast Business has continued to steadily move up market from SMB customers to Mid-Market to large enterprise, providing business solutions of all sizes and scale to some of the most influential and largest private brands and critical community pacemakers,” said Bill Stemper, president of Comcast Business. “The appointment of Ken Folderauer represents the beginning of our next move: providing communications technologies to government agencies.”
Folderauer brings more than 35 years of telecommunications and public sector experience, holding various positions at Time Warner, Century Link, British Telecomm, Qwest Communication’s Government Services Group and Verizon Communications. Prior to joining Comcast Business he led Oracle’s National Security Group’s Communications Services Division. In this role, he focused on serving the U.S. Federal Government’s global communications needs.
Before joining Oracle, Folderauer also served as CEO and President of BT Federal, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of British Telecom. Under Folderaurer’s leadership, BT Federal won several significant awards, including DISA’s Global Network Services (GNS) contract with a ceiling value of $4.3B. Additionally, BT Federal was awarded a “Prime” contract role on GSA’s prestigious EIS multiple award government-wide contract valued at $50B. Prior to this appointment, Ken was the President of Public Sector at Time Warner Telecom.
Folderauer attended University of Maryland and Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia. He was elected and held the position of Director on the Board of the Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association (AFCEA).
