Among cable advertising’s most influential leaders, Manos leads ad and sponsorship sales across all AMC networks.

It’s just another example of her strategic vision that continues to drive success. Despite standard upfront volume being down in the 2014-15 season, AMC Networks’ advertising sales was up double-digits.

Turn that down first.”
