McSlarrow Exits Comcast D.C. Office

Cohen left in charge of public policy

Comcast's Kyle McSlarrow is packing his snow skis. The longtime Beltway insider who has headed up the cable giant's Washington, D.C., office for the past 18 months is moving to Salt Lake City to serve as the company's regional vp of its mountain division. He'll report to Steve White, president of Comcast Cable's western division.

When McSlarrow took the job as president of Comcast's D.C. office after six years as chief lobbyist for the National Cable & Telecommunications Association, he wanted to concentrate on the operations side of the business. During his D.C. tenure, he also had some limited oversight of Comcast operations in the local area.

Comcast has no plans to replace McSlarrow, a spokesman said Wednesday. That leaves David Cohen, evp of Comcast, firmly in charge as the company's chief lobbyist.

"I'd like to thank Kyle for his work leading our public policy efforts in D.C., along with his many years of support at the NCTA," said Cohen in a statement. "We're delighted Kyle will now be turning all of his attention to our business operations, which has been a goal of his since he came to Comcast."
