Cox Communications is celebrating three extraordinary women who are driving telecommunications in the Valley.

In honor of International Women’s Day, Cox Communications is recognizes Susan Anable.

She came to Cox in 2001 in a government relations management role before being elevated to vice president of public affairs for the southwest region and now Phoenix market vice president.

Ms. Anable champions Cox’s digital equity programs, like Connect2Compete, so that the learning gap can be erased between those who have access to the internet and those who do not.

Ms. Anable is at the center of Cox’s evolution from a cable, TV and phone service provider for residents and businesses in greater Phoenix and greater Tucson, to a rapidly expanding communications technology company that now reaches into northern Arizona and rural communities across the state.

Rachel Aja, a native Arizonan with Spanish Basque roots, from a ranching family in Buckeye, leads government relations for Cox and focuses her team on legislation and municipal activity related to technology, construction and permitting for telecommunication services.

She is instrumental in shepherding Cox’s $75 million investment along with securing millions of dollars in Arizona Broadband Development Grants through the Arizona Commerce Authority to bring super-fast internet services to unserved and underserved rural communities.

Delma Herrera is the vice president of field sales for Cox Communications in Phoenix.

As a child of Mexican immigrants, Ms. Herrera has excelled in critical corporate roles with increasing responsibility over her 20 years at Cox and 30 years in the telecommunications industry. Ms. Herrera leads 550-plus employees for Cox across Arizona, Nevada and California.

Outside of Cox, she is chair of Chicanos Por La Causa and serves on CPLC’s Early Childhood Development Committee focused on Head Start, seasonal and migrant farm worker programs and early education.

Ms. Herrera is a member of the Latino Advisory Council for the National Hockey League’s Arizona Coyotes, a member of Women in Cable Telecommunications and a member of the National Association for Multi-Ethnicity in Communications.
