President, Strategic Initiatives, Cable Entertainment Group
NBCU may have morphed Style Media into Esquire Network this fall, but a highly regarded network leader is always in fashion. Innovative, strategic and humble, Coleman Smith built Style into a lifestyle empire that crossed platforms and saw a record-breaking 2012 as the most watched year in its history., with 2013 also tracking well. She also oversaw a closet-full of programming firsts, including the much-heralded “Styled To Rock,” from executive producer Rihanna. In her new NBCU role, Coleman Smith is poised to make an even bigger impact in the future.
