Charter recruits Cablevision lobbyist Catherine Bohigian

Charter Communications (Nasdaq: CHTR) continues to lure execs away from other MSOs. The newest addition to the Charter team is Catherine Bohigian, who was named executive vice president of government affairs and will oversee all aspects of Charter's government relations.

 Bohigian previously was senior vice president, federal affairs at Cablevision (NYSE: CVC) and before that she served at the FCC in various capacities, including senior advisor to FCC Chairman Kevin Martin. Beohigian replaces Robert Quicksilver, who is leaving the company.

Charter CEO Tom Rutledge, who worked at Cablevision and Time Warner Cable (NYSE: TWC) before joining Charter in December 2011, has recruited several former Cablevision and Time Warner Cable executives. In September, Charter appointed former Cablevision veteran Kathleen "Kip" Mayo EVP of customer operations.

Charter, which is based in St. Louis, is opening a New York office for Rutledge and his leadership team.
