There he supported the launch of several new businesses to drive growth, including Time Warner Cable’s expansion into Home Security & Automation. Ahmed also spent 10 years in finance, operations, and M&A leadership roles at RCN. His experience culminated in his position as Vice President and General Manager of the company’s largest business division, where he architected a successful turnaround of its operations.
