In the ever-evolving world of technology, Marilyn Burrows has made sure Cox Communications stays on the cutting edge.
Case in point is the just-opened, 67-acre CityCenter project.
Cox is utilizing Internet Protocol television to provide 230 channels of domestic and international TV content besides video-on-demand services to all guest rooms. Almost 75 of the channels provide commercial-free digital music. Guests can also check on the status of their flight departure through the system.
“We’re very proud to be able to provide our award-winning technologies and expertise to this iconic destination,” Burrows said. “Guests will experience the most advanced entertainment systems we can offer when they interact with Cox’s products and services.”
Burrows assumed leadership of Cox’s Las Vegas cable system in March of last year. She previously was vice president and GM of Cox’s Roanoke, Va., office. Her background also includes stints as a vice president at Time Warner Cable in Denver and at U S WEST Communications.
“We’re in a rapidly evolving industry,” she said. “Web access to television programming is growing. The proliferation of mobile devices will continue. More competition is keeping us on our toes in this very tough economy in Las Vegas.
“In a competitive market, we believe the customer experience that Cox can deliver is our differentiator,” Burrows added. “We are proud that our employees always look to put our customers first.”
Burrows has a passion for education and serves on the board of trustees for the College of Southern Nevada Foundation. She is also very involved with Cox Charities, an employee-led philanthropic program at the company.
