Charter names AOL exec as new CEO

Charter Communications named former America Online executive Neil Smit as its new president and chief executive, effective Aug. 22, the company said Tuesday.

Smit, 46, was most recently president of Time Warner's America Online Access Business, overseeing AOL, CompuServe and Netscape ISP and more than 11,000 employees.

Smit succeeds Robert May, who has been interim president and CEO since January, when Carl Vogel resigned. May will remain on the company's board and a member of its strategic planning committee.

Before joining AOL in 2000, Smit was a regional president for Nabisco and in management with Pillsbury. He was also a Navy SEAL in the U.S. Navy.

St. Louis-based Charter Communications Inc. (Nasdaq: CHTR) is the nation's third-largest cable television provider, and also provides digital video programming and high-speed Internet access.
