As VP of Communications & Digital Strategy, Brian manages NCTA’s efforts around media outreach, social media and the group’s websites and digital platforms. His personal mission to question traditions (just ask his wife!) is a good baseline for his constant encouragement to find creative ways to communicate complicated issues. When he’s not at the office, you will find Brian with his two daughters, biking the hilly roads of Maryland or teeing off at a local golf course, but definitely not doing yard work.

This campaign has been waged with lots of incendiary rhetoric…
