Comcast has confirmed that Dan Herscovici has left his role as senior VP and GM of Xfinity Home.

The Philadelphia Business Journal was the first to report on Herscovici’s exit. A Comcast representative told FierceCable Thursday evening that he’d get back to us with more details—we’re still waiting for that call. Multichannel News, however, learned that Herscovici’s departure occurred earlier this month and that the executive has been replaced by company veteran Dennis Mathew.

Comcast didn’t offer a reason for the departure of Herscovici, a former Motorola executive with the typical Wharton School pedigree favored by Comcast, who had been with the company since 2007.In his last role, Herscovici was responsible for Comcast’s burgeoning connected home and residential security businesses. Under his watch, home security grew its user base to nearly 1.1 million subscribers.
