TiVo has appointed Enrique Rodriguez to the position of president and CEO. Mr. Rodriguez also joins the company’s board. He succeeds Thomas Carson, who announced his intention to retire earlier this year.

Most recently, Mr. Rodriguez was executive vice president and chief technical officer of AT&T’s Entertainment Group, and his prior career includes executive positions within Sirius XM, Cisco Systems’ Service Provider Video Technology Group and Microsoft’s TV Division, as well as serving as vice president of Xbox Partnerships for Microsoft.

Mr. Carson, who is also stepping down from the board, will stay on in an advisory capacity through the beginning of the second quarter of 2018 to assist in the CEO transition, said the company in a statement.
