SVP, Distribution Business Development, Marketing and Analytics, A+E Networks
Garner oversees digital content distribution on nonlinear platforms, business development and affiliate marketing across AETN’s networks. A strong leader who is passionate about securing digital distribution of mega hits like A&E’s “Duck Dynasty” and History’s “Vikings” for the company’s customers, Garner has been at the forefront of an industrywide effort to increase awareness and usage of TV Everywhere content. He is very active in industry organizations, including NAMIC and CTAM, and this past year was named co-chair of the latter’s TV Everywhere Steering Committee. But his most cherished accomplishment? “I survived the first day of my son going to kindergarten without shedding a tear! My closest kept secret is that I am a big softie.” Good dad.
