Incoming Time Warner Cable CEO Says He’s the Right Guy to Sell the Company

Dec 6, 2013  •  Post A Comment

In an interview with Bloomberg, the next chief executive of Time Warner Cable said he’s the right guy to sell the company, if the price is right.

“I am the perfect guy to manage the M&A component out there,” Rob Marcus said in the interview. “As much as I’d like to be modest, I am kind of built to manage situations like this.”

Marcus is taking over from Glenn Britt, while Charter Communications — a smaller competitor in terms of market valuation — is trying to put together an offer to buy the company. Comcast and Cox Communications have also considered offers, the piece adds.

He’s taking over at a “weird” time, Marcus told Bloomberg. He declined to comment on potential bid prices, but said he isn’t against selling the company.

“I am interested only in the value creation and not in entrenchment or my role here,” he said. He added that he’s not worried about losing his job.

“If I want another job, I’m going to get one. I have no doubt. And it’s going to be a good one,” he said.

  1. This guy sounds awfully self-important to me. Comcast will probably end up gobbling up BOTH companies when it is all said and done with.
