Cable One readies for spin-off, taps Kevin Coyle as CFO

Cable One took a crucial step as it prepares to be spun off as an independent company, announcing the appointment of longtime telecom executive Kevin Coyle as senior VP and chief financial officer.

Coyle, who in his most recent post served as CFO of student housing pay-TV and broadband services provider Elauwit Networks, arrives at the Phoenix, Ariz.-based MSO as it is in the process of being spun off from parent company Graham Holdings.

He'll report to Cable One CEO Tom Might, while overseeing accounting, reporting, finance and investor relations for the company, which expects to begin trading as an independent company this summer. The move follows the promotion of longtime Cable One executive Julie Laulis to president and COO in January.

Coyle has also served as treasurer and CFO of Jones Intercable before it was sold to Comcast, and he has led several tech startups as CEO.

"We expect Kevin's financial leadership and style will serve Cable One very well," Might said. "We are fortunate to find someone with his extensive background in finance and operations in telecom and high tech arenas.  I am confident that he will not only help us transition to a publicly traded company, but to build an infrastructure that supports long-term growth."
