Nutsugah will oversee the end-to-end product lifecycle function for all residential and business voice, video and data services and will report directly to Executive Vice President Kevin Hart, who now oversees technology and product organizations.

Since joining Cox in 2006, Nutsugah has served in various leadership roles in the product organization, recently guiding the development and launch of Cox Gigablast and Panoramic WiFi.

"The expertise of our product development and management team is increasingly important as we focus on aggressively competing and growing our portfolio to better serve new and existing customers," said Kevin Hart, executive vice president, chief product management and technology officer. "Under Philip's leadership, Cox's aggressive Gigabit internet launch has led the market and he'll bring that same level of commitment and creative approach to our full suite of services."

Steve Necessary, who has led all major video initiatives in the last 13 years and managed the company's full product portfolio since 2015, will retire at the end of the year. Prior to joining Cox, Necessary served for more than 20 years in leadership positions at Concurrent Computer Corporation and Scientific Atlanta.
