In the newly created role, Slovin will oversee the integration of the operator's advanced connectivity options with smart technology partners to enable the delivery of innovative smart technology platforms to clients. 

The new business division officially launched in April 2022. According to a press release, Slovin brings to this new role a track record of innovation within Comcast coupled with deep industry experience.

Tim Collins, SVP of Strategic Broadband Expansion and Smart Solutions for Comcast, said:

“We’re thrilled to have Mike lead the Comcast Smart Solutions team. Mike has a deep understanding of the industry and the benefits that innovative solutions can bring to our clients, helping to make their communities more efficient and sustainable.”

Building upon its current offerings from Comcast Business, Xfinity Communities, and MachineQ, Comcast Smart Solutions helps its clients build scalable smart technology ecosystems by providing connectivity and advisory services, and pairing clients with strategic collaborators that provide smart technology offerings, including but not limited to building solutions, video analytics, lighting, and parking.

A telecommunications industry veteran, Slovin has spent the last 15 years in corporate leadership positions at Comcast. He will remain based in the company’s Philadelphia corporate headquarters.

Slovin's roles have included leading Xfinity Communities’ national accounts and direct sales channels and, most recently, serving in the role of VP of National Field Sales, managing the teams that transform individual multifamily properties into smart, connected communities, supporting millions of residents.

Prior to Comcast, Slovin occupied various leadership positions with Sprint, Winstar and MCI Communications (now Verizon Communications).

Slovin commented:

“Leading our Smart Solutions division is a great opportunity to keep Comcast at the forefront of the connectivity space. I’m excited by the chance to help our clients realize the benefits of smart technologies.”
