Mediacom Communications has promoted Julien Dancona to senior vice president and corporate controller. In this new role, Dancona will lead all aspects of the accounting and financial reporting functions of the company.
An experienced accounting executive, Dancona joined Mediacom in 2001 and has served as Group Vice President of Accounting since 2010. He began his career with Continental Cablevision in 1994 and, through acquisitions, worked for MediaOne Group and AT&T Broadband. He is a resident of Warwick.
Dancona replaces Brian Walsh, who is retiring from Mediacom after a 35-year career in the cable television business, beginning with Cablevision Industries in 1988. Joining in 1996 as the company’s first full-time accountant, Walsh laid the foundation of Mediacom’s accounting and financial reporting systems. Over the years, he trained and managed a highly effective accounting organization that now includes more than 70 professionals.
“Brian’s leadership, expertise and dedication have been instrumental in guiding Mediacom’s growth and success,” said Mark Stephan, Mediacom’s executive vice president, and chief financial officer. “He leaves behind an amazing team of accounting professionals that will continue to support the company’s long-term goals,”
Stephan added: “Demonstrating strong capabilities in his role as Group Vice President over the past several years, Julien has the wealth of knowledge and skills to effectively manage the accounting and financial reporting functions. We look forward to seeing him excel in his new role.”
