PITTSBURGH, May 25, 2021 – ACA Connects Chairman Patricia Jo Boyers and President and CEO Matthew M. Polka issued the following statement on the selection of Lou Borrelli as the new Chief Executive Officer of the National Cable Television Cooperative (NCTC):
Commented Chairman Boyers:
“ACA Connects and NCTC have for decades enjoyed a positive and productive relationship, with ACAC pursuing public policy goals and NCTC negotiating programming and equipment contracts with national and regional vendors. With the naming of Lou Borrelli as NCTC’s new leader, the ACAC-NCTC alliance is ready to use its combined assets and the unique skills of each organization to build a better future for our members as they navigate the complex transition from one primarily about linear TV channels to a new one primarily about broadband Internet access and all its exciting dimensions.”
Commented President & CEO Polka:
“I look forward to working with Lou, and I am positive ACAC and NCTC will quickly come to appreciate his vast knowledge of our sector and his creative approaches to solving the tough problems that inevitably lie ahead. Welcome aboard, Lou. We can’t wait to begin our important work together!
“As NCTC continues with its leadership transition, I would like to take a moment to salute Lou’s predecessor, NCTC CEO & President Rich Fickle. Rich and I built a strong friendship and partnership over the past decade, a bond that was truly instrumental in helping ACAC and NCTC adapt to marketplace disruption and regulatory challenges.
“Rich will be greatly missed and we wish him, his wife, Robin, and his family all the very best in his future endeavors.”
