Alphabet names Time Warner Cable former exec Dinesh Jain to lead Fiber division

By : |February 7, 2018 0

Alphabet, the parent company of Google has acquired the services of a former chief operating officer of Time Warner Cable to head its Access and Google Fiber, divisions. Jain is replacing former Access CEO Greg McCray, who left last year amid turmoil in Access over the future of Google Fiber.

The company said in a blog post, “Dinesh (Dinni) Jain, an accomplished veteran of the U.S. and European cable and telecommunications industries — most recently as Chief Operating Officer at Time Warner Cable — starts as CEO of Access today.”

Jain will lead Access and its team, which includes employees at headquarters in California and in the nearly 20 markets across the country where Google Fiber and Webpass have ongoing operations.

Access’ previous CEO, Gregory McCray, left the company in July, and Craig Barratt stepped down in October 2016. Jain is the third chief executive officer to lead the Access unit in just two years.

Access provides high-speed internet service under the Google Fiber and Webpass brand names. Service expanded to 20 US markets last year following launches in five metro areas, including San Antonio, Texas, and Seattle.
