SVP, Corporate Development, Scripps Networks Interactive

Yoo leads Scripps’ corporate development and early stage investment strategy, which includes identifying, evaluating and executing acquisitions, joint ventures, investments and partnerships that support the company’s growth objectives. The work of Yoo and her team helped secure the company as a programming leader, and although she’s steeped in lifestyle content, Yoo cites ABC’s “Quantico” as a series that reflects the kind of women’s roles she enjoys. “I love Priyanka Chopra’s role in that drama,” she says.
