Director, Sales - Multi-Family Communities Cox Communications
Sharon Douglass has been in the cable industry for over 20 years. She has her Master’s in Public Administration and started her career negotiating franchise agreements, lobbying state and local officials and sitting on non-for-profit boards representing the company. She began her cable journey with Continental Cablevision but as the industry consolidated, she played an integral part in transferring those agreements to MediaOne, TCI, ATT Broadband and finally Comcast.
She became Director of Sales and Marketing for Comcast and because of her success leading large sales organizations to achieve their goals, she was promoted to Senior Director of Direct Sales leading over 450 sales agents in the Greater Chicago Region.
In 2015 she left Comcast to take on a sales strategy role at Cox Communication’s corporate office for the direct sales, company owed and third-party retail sales teams. In this role she ensured the channels were driving profitable growth and had the tools and training needed to be successful.
In February of this year, she’s taken on a new challenge and moved with her husband and two dogs to Phoenix to be the Director of Sales for Multi-Family Communities with Cox. Sharon will continue to ensure that Cox is a trusted technology adviser to our MDU owners to help them future proof their properties.
