Remembering Jim

Jim Robbins served as president and chief executive officer of Cox Communications for 20 years, until his retirement at the end of 2005. Over those two decades, he guided the company to becoming a multi-service, broadband communications powerhouse.


“Jim embodied the spirit of our company – to do the right thing by the people the company touches – employees, customers, vendors, partners and the communities Cox serves.”

   Jim Kennedy, chairman and chief executive officer, Cox Enterprises, Inc.

“He was a friend, leader and mentor to countless people, including me, and is widely regarded as an industry pioneer who led our company with brilliant vision, courage and heart.”

   Pat Esser, president, Cox Communications, Inc.
