President and Founder.
Marcie Gershoni is an experienced Cable professional having worked as an account executive for one of the largest Cable Providers, and then in the Cable Consulting field for the past five years. During Marcie’s time at Comcast, she recognized the need on the part of Board Associations for an experienced partner to assist them in navigating and negotiating the most beneficial cable and Internet agreements for their communities. Rather than representing the Cable provider’s interest, as she did during her brief time at Comcast, Marcie is concerned with what best serves the wants and needs of residents in Community Associations. Marcie formed Community Cable Consultants (“CCC”) with the desire that Homeowner and Condominium Associations have a representative only concerned with their needs and best interests. CCC represents and works on behalf of Associations, and not with builders or developers, which sets CCC apart in the Cable Consulting industry. Marcie’s 20+year background at McGraw-Hill Construction, provides her with an understanding of the infrastructure and technology needs that should be considered as associations move forward into the future.
