Cablevision Systems has hired Keith Sherwell, former CIO of Office Depot’s international division, as chief information officer in a newly created role in which he will oversee all of the cable operator’s information systems.

Sherwell, who joined the MSO earlier this month, reports to Cablevision CTO David Dibble, previously head of Yahoo’s global infrastructure.

Sherwell joined Office Depot in September 2014. Prior to that, he was CIO of Sears Holding Corp., and before that was senior VP of technology at American Express for 13 years.

Prior to Dibble’s hiring, Cablevision’s most senior technology executive was EVP of corporate engineering and technology Yvette Kanouff, who left last year to join Cisco Systems. Dibble left Yahoo in July 2013 as EVP of central technology.
