The article reports on a new management and a new Chief Telecommunications Officer Marwan Fawaz, at Adelphia Inc., who moved ahead on a daunting turnaround project. Led by Fawaz, Adelphia's engineering efforts have become more than a story about a technical facelift. Those efforts have also helped to restore the image for an MSO in desperate need of a makeover, and the successes so far have only underscored the foresight Adelphia had in hiring Fawaz to help get that job done. Armed with a technical and operations background spanning more than two decades, Fawaz is now acknowledged as a top industry engineer and as a visionary, a tough combination to find.
