Sunni LeBeouf

Bridging the Digital Divide

Black History Month Spotlight


This Black History Month, Cox Communications is proud to recognize Sunni LeBeouf for her prolific record of professional achievement, civic philanthropy, and dedication to community enrichment. A long-time New Orleans resident, LeBeouf serves as the Market Vice President for Cox’s New Orleans market, where she champions a local organization of roughly four hundred employees.

Raised in New Orleans from a young age, LeBeouf is a graduate of Southern University and A&M College, and George Washington University Law School in Washington, DC, where she earned her Juris Doctorate and returned to Louisiana to begin her law and business career and where she met her husband Darrick and had two sons, Darrick Jr. and Grant.

Before joining Cox, LeBeouf held various positions, including positions as Assistant Vice President of Community and Public Affairs for Ochsner Health, City Attorney for the City of New Orleans, and Acting Civil Chief and Deputy Civil Chief of the United States Attorney’s Office, Eastern District of Louisiana. In 2020, New Orleans CityBusiness recognized her as the New Orleans Business Woman of the Year.

As Market Vice President for Greater New Orleans, LeBeouf is directly responsible for daily operations and a forward-thinking approach to the company’s relationship with its customers, employees, and community.

Of the many factors that LeBeouf has a direct hand in coordinating, the most prominent is eliminating the “digital divide.” A modern term for a global concern, “digital divide” refers to the gap between those with internet access and those without. While difficult for some to imagine, internet accessibility is not ubiquitous with existing in the 21st century and is a major factor in economic and cultural advancement. Everyone, from the youngest student in the classroom to our more mature neighbors, deserves to be connected to a rapidly advancing digital world. LeBeouf and her colleagues at Cox Communications are taking dramatic strides toward closing that gap.

“My most important role, currently, is removing the barriers to web access that affects so many members of our community,” says LeBeouf. “ Our Cox team is committed to digital equity and making sure digital access is available to everyone, thereby providing a higher quality of life. Access to the internet is of critical importance in the modern world, and providing that culturally necessary service is of the utmost importance.”

An outstanding community member as well, LeBeouf prides herself on being involved with several philanthropic organizations, including serving as a Commissioner with the Regional Transit Authority (RTA), a member of the Jazz and Heritage Foundation’s Advisory Council, the Louisiana Chapter of the International Women’s Forum (IWF), the New Orleans (LA) Chapter of the Links, Incorporated, the New Orleans Chapter of Jack and Jill of America, Incorporated and Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated.

This level of excellence will undoubtedly continue as she leads the New Orleans market of Cox Communications into new and exciting frontiers, offering technological advancement to the Greater New Orleans area.

Cox believes that diversity improves our business, strengthens our communities, and contributes to the economic well-being of an increased number of businesses and their employees.
