Roberts

Chairman / CEO

Roberts has grown Comcast exponentially since he succeeded his father as its president in 1990 at the age of 31, establishing it as the largest cable TV provider in the U.S. as well as a major player on the supply side of film and TV with its acquisition of NBCUniversal. Roberts deftly pivoted the linear TV behemoth into the streaming biz with the July 2020 launch of Peacock, which faces many bigger players in that cate­gory. Nevertheless, Comcast has stayed strong in so many other businesses, from theme parks to broadband. In July 2021, it was announced that 20 million customers of its Sky TV division in the U.K. and Europe would begin receiving the service for free later in the year. He has since signaled he’s exploring more global partnership opportunities.
