MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Dec. 9, 2009) - Louis Audet, President of Cogeco Cable (TSX:CCA) announced the appointment of Martinho Tojo as Senior Vice President and General Manager of its Portuguese subsidiary Cabovisao, effective December 1st.

Mr. Tojo, who holds a degree in Civil Engineering, discovered an affinity for sales early in his career. From 1989 to 1994, he worked in sales at Procter & Gamble's new Lisbon subsidiary, primarily to recruit and manage representatives responsible for negotiations with the country's largest retailers.

After a year as Manager of Operations at Pepsi Cola International, with the mandate to develop the company's strategic plan in Portugal, Mr. Tojo joined Danone Group, where he held senior management positions in Portugal, France and Turkey. Mr. Tojo's accomplishments during his 14 years with Danone include numerous strategic mandates, mergers, product launches, restructuring projects and an array of production operations projects.

Innovation and communication have been the cornerstones of his career. In addition, Mr. Tojo believes the key to success lies in a strong, disciplined management team with an unwavering focus on results.

This month, Jules Grenier ends his mandate as Vice President, Portugal at the helm at Cabovisao. Mr. Grenier, who will support Mr. Tojo through the transition until December 18, 2009, returns to the Canadian operations team on February 15, 2010 as Vice President, Sales and Customer Services.

His experience, his expertise and his knowledge of the Portuguese market will be key assets for Cabovisao. We take this opportunity to thank Mr. Grenier for his dedicated service in Portugal.
