Lumen hires former Hulu general counsel as CLO

Chad Ho was part of the original management team at Hulu

Lumen Technologies has hired Chad Ho as executive vice president and chief legal officer (CLO), effective next month.

Ho was part of the original management team at Hulu and spent more than 14 years at the company as general counsel and corporate secretary. Following Hulu’s sale and integration into Disney, he oversaw legal matters for the global business operations across Disney’s TV networks and streaming services. Most recently, Ho was CLO for Sabre Corporation, a travel technology company.

Ho succeeds Stacey Goff, who has worked at Lumen and its predecessor companies for 26 years and is retiring. According to a corporate announcement, Goff is expected to remain with Lumen for a few weeks after Ho’s arrival to ensure a smooth transition. 

Lumen was short-listed in three categories for Governance Intelligence’s 16th Corporate Governance Awards in 2023: best ESG reporting (small cap), best proxy statement (small cap) and best shareholder engagement (small to mid-cap).

Kate Johnson, president and CEO of Lumen, says in a statement: ‘Chad’s innovative and proven experience with large public companies and his ability to fuel growth in the technology sector makes him the perfect person to guide Lumen through its ongoing transformation. I am confident in [his] ability to bring unique insights and drive results. In addition, his ability to motivate is a great cultural fit for this company.

‘I want to thank Stacey for his contributions, leadership and commitment through many important moments in Lumen’s history. Stacey built a significant legacy, having led with care and empathy during challenging times. He leaves Lumen with a stronger foundation.’

Goff says in the announcement: ‘It has been a privilege to serve at Lumen. Through the years, I have seen this company transform from a small telecommunications firm into a powerful technology company. I have loved the many great people I have worked with here and am proud of all that we have achieved together and of the transformational journey that began so many years ago. I know Lumen has the right strategy in place to deliver revenue growth. I look forward to watching the company’s success.’
