Atlantic Broadband turns over top ranks, promotes Shea and Isenberg

Rich Shea has been tapped to replace Edward Holleran as president and CEO of Atlantic Broadband, with Dave Isenberg also being promoted to the role of president and chief revenue officer.

The move becomes effective Jan. 1, with Holleran staying on in the part-time role of VP of industry relations.

The announcement was made Wednesday by Cogeco Cable, Atlantic Broadband's parent company. Cogeco purchased Atlantic in 2012 for about $1.36 billion. According to Multichannel News, the MSO has approximately 227,000 customers spread across Western Pennsylvania, Southern Florida, Maryland, Delaware and South Carolina.

In its fiscal fourth quarter earnings report on Oct. 31, Cogeco said Atlantic earnings were in line with expectations.

Shea and Isenberg have worked with Atlantic Broadband since the company's founding in 2003. Shea started with the company as CIO, serving as COO the past several years. Isenberg began his Atlantic career as senior director of products and has been chief marketing and strategy officer since 2012.

"This structure recognizes the complementary roles that Rich and Dave will have in the leadership of Atlantic Broadband going forward," said Louis Audet, president and CEO of Cogeco Cable, in a statement. "I'm confident that, with their years of experience at Atlantic Broadband since its very beginnings, having gained a wealth of knowledge on our business and our markets and a deep understanding of our customers, Rich and Dave will each play a key role in leading Atlantic Broadband to reach new summits."
