In two decades with Discovery, Willliams- Fauntroy has worked for nearly every network in the portfolio—a path that has given her an unmatched understanding of the business and an extensive network of industry relationships. Calling her “the wonder woman of Discovery Channel” and a “creative dealmaker,” Marc Graboff, Discovery Communications’ president of global business & legal affairs, production management and studios, points to another of her greatest strengths: an innate creativity that drives innovative solutions for difficult deals. An active mentor, Williams-Fauntroy says, “One of the most important mentoring strategies that I like to use is to bring a mentee into ‘the room where it happens’—Hamilton fans know what I mean! I believe exposing someone to live, real time discussions makes the work more intriguing.”
