By: John Eggerton, Multichannel News
The National Cable & Telecommunications Association has retained executive search firm Korn Ferry once again to help find the next head of the cable organization.
Current NCTA president Kyle McSlarrow announced he will be leaving in the spring to take a job with an operator or programmer.
Nels Olson, managing director of the Easter Region will head up the search. Anyone looking to throw their name in the hat can contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org or (202) 822-9444.
Olson headed up the 2005 search that resulted in McSlarrow's hiring.
Olson will report to NCTA chairman and Cox president Patrick Esser.
