Pirot had a busy year overseeing licensing of NBCU’s television networks content across every platform imaginable. And she made key development and distribution deals, too. Teamwork is part of her success. “Someone who has had a positive impact on the company, earned the respect of her peers, and created an environment where a team can thrive and grow has been successful in her career,” she says.

How do you define a successful career?

To me, a successful career is defined by the level of enjoyment and challenges of the work itself. In my view, someone who has had a positive impact on the company, earned the respect of her peers, and created an environment where a team can thrive and grow has been successful in her career.

Best trick for maintaining the personal-professional life balance?

Balancing a personal-professional life is always challenging and what I have found most helpful is to set clear expectations, both at home and at work. I’ve learned that everyone loses when I’m overextended and saying “no” is not a sign of weakness or a lack of commitment, but rather a sign that you are in control.

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

You can always find me outdoors with my family – hiking, swimming, kayaking, snowshoeing – whatever makes sense for the season!  We live on a lake in a wooded area and take advantage of it every chance we get.
