Over the next six years, Kara performed audits and advisory projects across all Comcast businesses (Cable, Corporate, and NBCUniversal), while climbing the ranks by being promoted to Senior Consultant, Engagement Manager, and most recently, Engagement Principal. With her latest promotion, Kara will now focus specifically on overall strategy for process improvement for Comcast’s Cable businesses.
