Abbas quits NCTC for 'other opportunities'

Jeffrey Abbas, president-CEO of the National Cable Television Cooperative (NCTC) for the past six years, is moving on "to pursue other opportunities."

Abbas' departure, coincidentally, comes at the same time that another industry trade organization leader, NCTA President Kyle McSlarrow, announced that he would be joining Comcast. McSlarrow told NCTA that he would be leaving in November.

Abbas' departure means that former NCTC board chairman Tom Gleason, executive vice president of NewWave Communications, will serve as interim CEO as the co-op conducts a search for a permanent replacement. Perhaps it can pool its resources with NCTA which also said it's still looking for McSlarrow's replacement.
