Avgiris’ financial background combined with her operational expertise and broad knowledge of the cable and media industries gives her a unique perspective when making key decisions. When it comes to supporting the cable industry’s women, she says, “We need to give women a chance at non-conventional roles. I have a finance background, but someone took a chance at giving me an operations role, then a product management role, both of which greatly expanded the opportunities I had for future career growth.”

How can cable do better job at supporting the industry’s women?

There are a lot of talented women in various functional roles throughout the industry.  We need to give women a chance at non-conventional roles.  I have a finance background, but someone took a chance at giving me an operations role, then a product management role, both of which greatly expanded the opportunities I had for future career growth.

What’s been the biggest story in cable this year?

I can’t imagine anything bigger than the Comcast Time Warner deal.

How do you define a successful career?

To me, a successful career is measured by the talent you have developed around you, the people that want to follow you as you move from job to job, and by when your passion for excellence becomes the passion of everyone you touch.  When people remember words of advice you gave them five years ago and how that changed their own career path…that’s pretty powerful.
