Menzel offered one of our favorite pieces of advice for maintaining a personal-professional balance: “Marry someone in the business… You can, for example, go to NCTA together.” Menzel spearheads Discovery’s multiplatform marketing and renewal strategies for the company’s distributor agreements. By aligning top programming properties with distributors’ business goals, Discovery now creates custom content, events, and media stunts that support Discovery’s distribution partners in an expanded way.

When not in the office, where are we most likely to find you?

Attending my kids events or listening to live music.
