Earlier this year, Dunleavy transitioned roles at NBCU—going from leading the cable division’s finance, business development and operations to overseeing content distribution. She now not only manages the financial scale of the group’s $6 billion revenue, but also oversees research insights and business developments. On balancing her professional and personal life, Dunleavy says, “I tip my hat to Suzie Welch and her 10, 10, 10 strategy and ask what will matter most in 10 minutes, 10 months and 10 years? That really works!”
