UPC ups Musselman to main office

Exec named COO of broadband company

AMSTERDAM — United Pan Europe Communications (UPC) has boosted Gene Musselman to the position of chief operating officer of the Dutch-based broadband company.

Musselman moves up from his current post as chief operating officer of UPC’s Central European Region, a job he has held for a year. Prior to that, he worked as managing director of UPC’s Austrian subsidiary Telekabel Wien.

Musselman will be responsible for all operational aspects of UPC’s business, including the technical and logistical aspects of the DaVinci program, UPC’s skedded digital services platform, as well as the rollout of UPC’s digital set-top computers.

His appointment is effective immediately. Musselman has been with UPC and UPC parent company UnitedGlobalCom since 1991. Prior to that, he ran the U.S. cable operations of the Hearst Corp., where he was chief operating officer for eight years.

Based at company headquarters in Amsterdam, he will report to John Riordan, president of UPC.

UPC said a successor to Musselman in Central Europe has been identified and an announcement will be made shortly.
