Manos is a matchmaker of sorts, pairing AMC, IFC and WE tv’s alluring programs with eligible and upstanding brands.

Up next is switching Sundance Channel’s revenue stream from a sponsorship model to an ad-supported network, a task she previously accomplished for IFC.
What’s your favorite part of your job?

Who would you want to swap jobs with for a month and why?
