Charter Communications Inc. names new CEO

Charter Communications Inc. names new CEO

Charter Communications Inc. has selected Neil Smit, an executive with Time-Warner Inc.'s America Online subsidiary, as its new chief executive after an eight-month search.

Smit succeeds Robert P. May, who has been interim president and chief executive since Carl E. Vogel resigned in January. May will remain as a Charter board member and a member of its strategic planning committee.

Smit, 46, most recently was president of AOL's Access Business, overseeing Internet access services including AOL, CompuServe and Netscape ISP. He will start his new job Aug. 22, the day before Charter's shareholder meeting in Seattle.

"Neil is a proven, talented executive with the right combination of operational, marketing and customer service skills to lead Charter to the next level," said Paul G. Allen, Charter's chairman and its largest shareholder.

Smit said, "Charter has the workforce, the network and the products and services in place to become a formidable player in the provision of bundled video, data and telecommunications services, where technological advances and quality customer care provide real growth opportunities."

Charter, based in Town and Country, is the nation's fourth largest cable company, with just under 6 million subscribers.
