Being inducted into The Cable Hall of fame is one of our industry's highest honors and I'm proud to see John's dedication and impact deservedly recognized. "Jo Van Biesbroeck, Chairman of the board of directors at Telenet: "The Cable Hall of Fame can be compared to the Oscars, but for the cable industry. It is an honor for Telenet that John will be inducted into this select group of top managers of the telecom and media industry. With a career of some 40 years in the industry, he has helped to shape our sector. John has turned Telenet into a telecom and entertainment company that no longer focuses solely on cable.Surely that is unique in the telecom world and we, as a board, and Telenet employees, are very proud with this great recognition."

It has been a true privilege to be part of the worldwide cable industry from its early pioneering days until its leading position today. Since the start of my career 41 years ago, I have been fortunate to meet and work with so many talented people who share my vision, my values and my commitment. This recognition also extends to the Telenet team, and I am looking forward to continue building the Telenet' story with them". Attachments
