Sky group chief executive Jeremy Darroch is joining with senior members of the Comcast leadership team in donating their salaries in support of Covid-19 relief efforts.
The decision was announced by Comcast CEO and chief executive Brian Roberts in a statement released Wednesday.
“For the duration of this situation, our senior leaders – Mike Cavanagh, Dave Watson, Jeff Shell, Jeremy Darroch and I – have chosen to donate 100% of our salaries to charities that support Covid-19 relief efforts,” said Roberts. “We hope in some small way we can make this time easier on our employees, our local communities and our customers.”
“This is a time for everybody across the country to do their bit and make a difference where they can,” added Darroch.
Last week it was announced that NBCUniversal chief executive Jeff Shell had tested positive for Covid-19. The symptoms are thought to be mild and he is continuing to work from his Los Angeles home.
