Charter Communications


Chairman / CEO

As the pandemic was rocking the world and many sectors of the entertainment industry, Rutledge got some good news for both himself and the cable behemoth that he runs, Charter Communications. In the company’s Q2 2020 earnings call, Charter announced it had added 94,000 video customers in the quarter and seen an 8.3% increase in internet subscribers year-over-year. It also revealed that Rutledge’s contract had been extended beyond its April 2021 expiration, along with a little corporate forgiveness: it was waiving $85 million in overdue balances for customers unable to pay. Rutledge took the helm of Charter in 2012 and has grown it to become the second-largest MSO behind Comcast with the acquisition of Time Warner Cable and Bright House Networks in 2016.
