Steven Wagner, a FOCUS Senior Advisor, has over thirty years of executive management, marketing, sales and operational experience in media, telecommunications and tech companies. He has been a leader and key member of management teams responsible for rapid growth, restructuring and new product introduction and innovation.

For nearly twenty years, Mr. Wagner worked internationally in Europe and Canada growing broadband communications companies. In Canada, Mr. Wagner served as Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer for Rogers Cable Communications, Canada’s largest telecoms company. At Rogers, Mr. Wagner was responsible for all company wide marketing for all cable products (voice, video and data) including product management, product development, consumer and small business marketing, customer planning and marketing communications. He was responsible for managing a $150M annual marketing budget and staff of 300 professionals while successfully growing revenue, subscribers and exceeding EBITDA targets annually.

In Europe, while based in London, Mr. Wagner served as Group Managing Director, Chief Marketing Officer and Vice President of NTL, Inc. (now Virgin Media UK). He was part of the initial senior management team responsible for establishing the UK and European businesses that experienced substantial growth by franchising, acquisition and joint ventures over the 10 year period. Throughout that timeframe revenues grew to $4.9B USD and employees to over 22,000 while areas serviced included the majority of the UK mainland and European capitals including Paris, Zurich, Stockholm and Frankfurt.

While at NTL UK, Mr. Wagner was successful at designing and implementing the first cable ‘bundles’ of packing telephone and television (later including internet) for consumers and businesses. These bundles help break the critical penetration levels necessary to grow and finance the UK broadband business. Additionally he was a Board member and operational executive of management teams responsible for restructuring a number of company acquisitions.

Mr. Wagner has a B. A. in History from Lake Forest College and an M.B.A. in Marketing and Finance from Columbia Unversity. He resides in Washington, D.C. with his wife, Linda. They have five adult children.
