Most companies help newly hired top execs to relocate themselves and their families to live near the company headquarters. But it looks like Charter Communications CEO Tom Rutledge would prefer to relocate the top echelon of the St. Louis-based company to his stomping grounds in or around New York City. The cable company said today it will open an office in the New York metro area later this year “to house a limited number of senior executives” including “some direct reports and staff of the relocated executives.” Charter says St. Louis will continue to have “most of the functions currently performed” there. And there’ll be no changes at Charter’s corporate office in Denver. Before joining Charter in February, Rutledge was an executive at Cablevision and Time Warner Cable — both based in the New York area. Also joining him in NYC will be COO John Bickham and Chief Marketing Officer Jonathan Hargis, both Cablevision alums.
