Cohen announced his intentions on Thursday. The announcement was accompanied by a brief SEC filing.
On Jan. 1, 2020, Cohen will step down from his current posts. On Dec. 31, 2020, Cohen will take on a new gig as a senior counselor for Comcast CEO Brian L. Roberts.
“After almost 20 years as a senior executive of Comcast, David Cohen will be stepping away from his many operational roles, effective January 1, 2020,” Roberts said in a statement. “It is impossible to overstate David’s value to Comcast NBCUniversal. I am deeply grateful to him as we have partnered together with a handful of executives to grow Comcast into the great company it is today. His impact on Philadelphia cannot be understated and his passion for diversity and inclusion has helped transform our company and our industry.
