SVP, Development and Production, Nat Geo WILD

Over the past 12 months, Han Vissering has brought Nat Geo Wild to new heights with expanded global programming and has matched it with record viewership numbers. In just a year, she commissioned more than 150 hours of programming for 166 countries, 330 million homes and 34 languages worldwide. Highlights include “Big Cat Week,” the net’s top-rated week for the third consecutive year, and “The Incredible Dr. Pol,” which earned the channel its top-rated telecast to date. Morever, 2013’s first quarter was the highest-rated and most-watched in all the net’s key demos. When it comes to diversity on screen, Han Vissering believes the industry is doing better. “But I hope to see more positive pictures of different cultures instead of salacious extremes,” she says. Rest assured, she’ll be on the forefront of making that happen.
