Liberty Global, Inc. (“Liberty Global” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: LBTYA, LBTYB and LBTYK), today announced that it will appoint Bryan Hall as Senior Vice President, General Counsel and Secretary for Liberty Global effective January 10, 2012. Bryan Hall will succeed Elizabeth Markowski who will retire, as planned, effective December 31, 2011 after more than 11 years with the Company and its predecessors.

Bryan Hall previously served as Secretary and General Counsel for Virgin Media Inc. (“Virgin”) (NASDAQ: VMED) from June 2004 until January 2011. During that time, Bryan oversaw Virgin’s legal and regulatory activities and played a key role in Virgin’s M&A, financing and strategic initiatives.

Prior to 2004, Bryan was a partner in the corporate department of the New York law firm Fried, Frank, Harris, Shriver & Jacobson LLP, specializing in public and private acquisitions and acquisition financings. Bryan was a lead corporate lawyer on the restructuring and reorganization of Virgin’s predecessor, NTL Incorporated, from 2002 to 2003.

Based in Denver, Hall will become an executive officer of Liberty Global reporting to the CEO and will be a member of the company’s executive management committee.

Mike Fries, President and CEO of Liberty Global, said: “I am thrilled to welcome Bryan to our senior management team. With his long background in international cable and extensive experience in M&A, financing and regulatory matters, he is uniquely qualified for this position and will add value to our group on day one.”

Mr. Fries added: “I have worked with Liz Markowski from the time we formed Liberty Global in 2005. She has been one of my most trusted executives. I would like to thank her personally for her incredible energy and tenacity – we shall miss her knowledgeable and wise counsel.”
