Time Warner Cable’s Next CEO Ready to Sell If Price Is Right

Rob Marcus has a message for Time Warner Cable Inc. shareholders: I’m the right guy to decide whether to sell the company.

The 48-year-old chief operating officer is replacing Glenn Britt as Time Warner Cable’s chief executive officer on Jan. 1, amid intense speculation that the company will be acquired. Marcus’s background as Time Warner Inc.’s head of mergers from 2003 to 2005 -- and his later years as chief financial officer of the cable business -- have given him the experience to know a good deal when he sees it, he said in an interview yesterday.
