Cable operator Charter Communications Inc. said Wednesday it has named Robert Cohn to its board of directors.
The addition of a new director came a day after the nation's fourth-largest cable operator emerged from Chapter 11 bankruptcy.
Cohn is the ninth director on the board. It will eventually be expanded to 11 members.
Cohn is an independent investor and corporate adviser. He was a partner with the Silicon Valley venture capital firm Sequoia Capital from 2002 through 2004. He was the founder, Chairman and CEO of Octel Communications Corp. from its inception in 1982 until it was purchased by Lucent Technologies in 1997.
