Chairman

A+E Networks

AETN believes in Raven, so much so that the company created the position of chairman and elevated her to its lofty heights in April. Now she provides the strategic vision behind the corporate business and charts the company’s course. Her direction is paying off as evidenced by the phenomenal success of breakout shows like “Duck Dynasty” and her close working relationship with AETN wunderkind Nancy Dubuc. “It’s exciting to come to work every day at a global media company because no day is like the day before,” says Raven. “There’s always a new challenge.”
