“We are thrilled to welcome an expert communicator like Leslie to the region team,” said Rich Jennings, senior VP of Comcast’s Mountain West Region.

“Leslie’s experience and leadership will support Comcast’s continued innovation, investment and involvement in the communities we serve, as we redefine how our customers enjoy entertainment, communicate, and connect to what is important to them. 

“We are transforming how we do business so we can deliver the next generation of products and ensure our customers have reliable access to the entertainment and information they expect. The responsibility of exceeding these expectations drives our work every day.” 

As part of her new role, Comcast said Oliver will support and engage with local, regional and national technology and community partners, civic leaders, media and other stakeholders to advance Comcast’s efforts to provide customers an improved experience and to shape the future of media and technology.
