NBCUniversal CEO Jeff Shell Steps Down Amid Investigation Into Inappropriate Conduct

Shell’s departure comes amid an “investigation led by outside counsel into a complaint of inappropriate conduct”. 

NBCUniversal CEO Jeff Shell announced he is stepping down “effective immediately,” according to a statement released by Comcast Corporation on Sunday.

Shell’s departure comes amid an “investigation led by outside counsel into a complaint of inappropriate conduct”.

“Today is my last day as CEO of NBCUniversal,” Shell said. “I had an inappropriate relationship with a woman in the company, which I deeply regret. I’m truly sorry I let my Comcast and NBCUniversal colleagues down.”

“We are disappointed to share this news with you,” read the statement issued by Brian L. Roberts and Mike Cavanaugh, the CEO, and president of Comcast respectively. “We built this company on a culture of integrity. Nothing is more important than how we treat each other. You should count on your leaders to create a safe and respectful workplace. When our principles and policies are violated, we will always move quickly to take appropriate action, as we have done here.”

Shell was appointed CEO of NBCUniversal in January 2020.
