Attendees will learn how global media companies are affecting decisions about content, products, new technologies and media, while improving and enhancing the customer’s experience.
“The whole beauty of NAB Show is that it brings together a diverse range of voices from all sides of the media and entertainment spectrum, and hosting a standout voice in the pay TV sector is a testament to that,” said Chris Brown, NAB executive vice president, Conventions and Business Operations. “To that end, we are very excited to have Dexter Goei – one of cable telecommunications’ greatest leaders – for a keynote discussion on the global growth of media companies at this year’s show.”
Goei is president of the board of Altice N.V., a global cable, fiber, telecommunications, content and media company; and chairman and CEO of Altice USA, a subsidiary of Altice N.V. and one of the largest broadband communications and video services providers in the United States.

Prior to joining Altice, Goei spent 15 years in investment banking with JP Morgan and then Morgan Stanley in their Media and Communications Group.
