WOW announced it has hired former Time Warner Cable executive Henry Hryckiewicz as its new CTO. Hryckiewicz's hiring came on the heels of WOW promoting Bill Case to the position of chief information officer last September. WOW also announced in September the departure of former chief technology officer Matt Bell.

Case will continue to focus on IT operations and project management for WOW, while Hryckiewicz will lead all engineering and network operation efforts.

"We are thrilled to have Henry join WOW at a pivotal time as we continue to grow and evolve our products and network to better serve our customers," said WOW CEO Teresa Elder, in a statement. "Henry has a distinguished career in telecommunications and brings extensive leadership expertise to our engineering and network operations teams. He will be instrumental in leading the way for our ongoing technological innovation."
