DISH has also announced that Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer (CCO) David Shull will begin a six-month leave of absence May 31 to assist with the care of a family member.

“I have worked closely with Steve for the past three years and I have every confidence that he has the leadership skills, the experience and tenacity to lead our programing operation with excellence,” said DISH President and Chief Executive Officer Joseph P. Clayton. “As our CCO, Dave has delivered tremendous achievements for DISH, including the leadership needed to establish a groundbreaking partnership with The Walt Disney Co. He has our support and we are already looking forward to his return.”
