    Amsterdam/Zurich (ots) - Liberty Global Inc. has appointed Rudolf Fischer as Managing Director of the Swiss cable network company cablecom, effective immediately. The decision was made within the scope of cablecom's greatly advanced integration and confirms the company's previous course. Liberty Global acquired cablecom in the fall of 2005.

    Rudolf Fischer, a member of cablecom's management for many years, becomes Managing Director Switzerland as of April 3 and, accordingly, head of the largest Swiss cable network company. The decision was made in conjunction with cablecom's advanced integration in Liberty Global's European undertaking, UPC Broadband. Gene Musselman, Chairman and COO of UPC Broadband, said: "Cablecom's integration is at a very advanced stage, and the future structures have been established. I am pleased that we have been able to enlist Rudolf Fischer, an experienced manager, for the position of Managing Director Switzerland. He will continue to lead cablecom on its present road to success."

    The 50-year-old Fischer joined cablecom in September 2001 as COO and has helped shape the company's successful development over the past five years - in particular its turnaround and strategic reorientation. Fischer led cablecom's operations from 2001 to 2004, and in January 2005, he focused his efforts on the department for commercial customers and the Romandie and Tessin regions.

    Before joining cablecom, Fischer held various leading positions with the consultancy firm of Arthur D. Little, most recently as Global Leader in the telecommunications sector. Prior to his work at Arthur D. Little, he was CEO of Ascom Ericsson Transmission AG. Fischer graduated from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology with a degree in electrical engineering and holds an MBA from the Graduate School of Business Administration, both in Zurich.

    Herb Hribar, who has provisionally managed cablecom since November 2005, will leave the company as previously arranged at the end of June 2006.
