Jason Armstrong, Chief Financial Officer, Comcast Corporation

Comcast on Friday named Jason S. Armstrong its new chief financial officer, a role previously held by Mike Cavanagh, who was named president in October.

Armstrong spent the past nine years in various financial leadership positions at Comcast, most recently as deputy CFO and treasurer, working closely with the management teams across Comcast Cable, NBCUniversal, and Sky.

Previously, he was treasurer of Comcast, chief financial officer at Sky, and head of investor relations and finance at Comcast. Prior to joining Comcast in 2014, Armstrong spent 13 years at Goldman Sachs, where he served as managing director and leader of the firm’s Cable and Telecommunications Research Group.

“Jason is ideally suited to be our next Chief Financial Officer,” Cavanagh said in a statement. “He is a trusted voice in the financial community, has a great understanding of our company, and is well respected by our management team. Jason is already playing a pivotal role in shaping our long-term strategy and I couldn’t be more excited to partner with him going forward.”

Cavanagh had continued to act as CFO after he was elevated to the role of president, the third in the company’s 59-year history.

“I’m incredibly honored to have this role and to work alongside [CEO Brian Roberts] and Mike and this exceptional team,” Armstrong said. “Comcast’s leadership, culture, strong financial position and commitment to innovation and growth attracted me here nearly a decade ago and continue to drive my excitement about the opportunities ahead of us.”

Comcast is due to report its fourth-quarter results on Jan. 26. Wall Street is forecasting revenue to be flat from the 2021 fourth quarter, through earnings per share is expected to jump about 10%. The Philadelphia-based cable giant posted a 1.5% revenue decline and swung to a loss of $4.67 billion in the third quarter.
