Cogeco Cable has appointed Rich Shea as president and CEO at Atlantic Broadband, and Dave Isenberg as president and chief revenue officer there, effective 1 January.

Existing Atlantic president and CEO Edward Holleran has decided to step down from the chief role, but plans to stay on as vice president of industry relations on a part-time basis.

Both Shea and Isenberg have been with Atlantic Broadband since it was founded in 2003. Shea began his stint there as CIO, and has served as COO over the past two years. Dave started as senior director of products and has been chief marketing and strategy officer since 2012.

"This structure recognises 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 Inc. "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."
