The learning and technology veterans will advance Jones/NCTI’s performance solutions for the cable and broadband industry with new products and services to support the way broadband industry professionals learn today.
“The expectation for cable and broadband professionals to learn, retain, perform and learn again as it relates to rapidly emerging technologies puts a tremendous amount of pressure on CLOs and training professionals,” said Glenn R.

Stacey and Wayne bring the expertise to create the right solutions for our MSO partners.”
Currently, Slaughter serves as CFO and acting CEO of Jones/NCTI. She steps into the CEO position effective immediately, and will retain her CFO duties. She will grow the product and service offerings of Jones/NCTI aggressively and expand the company’s relationships with industry leaders and vendors.
Slaughter brings deep knowledge of the learning and development industry, a broad background in strategic planning and strong ties to Jones/NCTI’s cable and broadband partners gained during her 18-year career with Jones/NCTI and Jones International, Ltd. Before her appointment as CFO, she served as Controller of Jones International. She began her career in accounting at Jones International in 1996.
