Cox Communications Names Andrew Goldberg as VP Strategic Planning & Analysis

Atlanta, GA - Cox Communications announced today that Andrew Goldberg has been named vice president of strategic planning and analysis. In this role, he will be responsible for facilitating the overall strategic planning process, cascading business unit strategies and portfolio diversification strategies that are required to achieve Cox's growth goals.

"Andrew has almost 20 years of experience successfully shaping corporate strategies, focusing on business development and executing on marketing initiatives," said Mark Bowser, executive vice president and chief financial officer of Cox Communications. "He will play an important role in strategically positioning Cox for the future."

Goldberg has held a number of senior-level positions prior to joining Cox. Most recently, Goldberg served as the senior vice president of Corporate Development at Bridgevine, a high-growth ecommerce company, where he was responsible for strategy, new business development, distribution alliances, affiliate network development and strategic growth initiatives. He contributed significantly to the company's growth by steering Bridgevine into the home movers' market segment and securing distribution relationships with top names in electronics, retail and web services. 

Prior to Bridgevine, Goldberg held various leadership roles in AOL's broadband and corporate divisions. He coordinated the launch of its OTT broadband service, which grew to 20% of AOL's customer base, and later led the internal "merger" of its dial-up and broadband businesses, to streamline expenses and improve its market effectiveness. In 2006, he was named general manager, Planning & Development for AOL Premium Services, which included managing strategic planning, business development and marketing initiatives for a business unit offering free and subscription-based consumer Web services.

Goldberg began his career in 1992 as a business development manager for the Trachtman Group, an M&A and strategic alliances boutique focused on the software industry. From there, he joined Nucifora Consulting Group, a marketing firm specializing in positioning strategy, customer acquisition, and loyalty, where he led client engagements and business development. While at Nucifora, Goldberg was the acting head of multi-store marketing for Chick-fil-A, Inc. where he was responsible for developing, piloting and expanding its multi-store marketing group.

Goldberg earned an MBA with honors from Harvard Business School and received an undergraduate degree from Emory University.
