Liberty Global, a global telecommunications company, has appointed Jason Waldron as senior vice president and chief accounting officer. He will report to Charlie Bracken, who will assume the role of chief financial officer for Liberty Global on Jan. 1, 2017.
Waldron has served 22 years in public accounting and is currently a partner for KPMG in its telecommunications practice in Denver. He served as KPMG’s lead audit partner for Liberty Global from 2010 to 2014.
Bracken is currently EVP and co-chief financial officer. He joined Liberty’s predecessor operations in Europe as CFO in 1999 from Goldman Sachs, and was appointed Co-CFO of Liberty Global at its formation in 2004.
The changes follow the planned retirement of Bernie Dvorak who currently serves as EVP and Co-CFO responsible for accounting, compliance, and investor relations. Dvorak will retire at the end of this year, after over three decades of leadership positions in the cable industry, most of which have been with Liberty Global and affiliated companies.
