Affiliate Sales Person of the Year (Below VP level) | Marc Lindenman, Manager, Distribution – Crown Media Family Networks (Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries)

Marc Lindenman has only begun rising through the distribution ranks, and yet he already oversees territory that includes nearly 1,000 cable systems and more than 8 million subscribers. In 2015, he secured carriage on more than 100 of those systems and repped more than 1.5 million incremental subscribers from key accounts including Bright House Networks, Cox, Service Electric Cable & Communications and Shentel. Meanwhile, he helped grow Hallmark Movies & Mysteries distribution by more than 12% and launched Hallmark Channel’s VOD content to 19 affiliates, representing 2.2 million Hallmark Channel subscribers. Lindenman also executed 15 affiliate partnerships, including new partnerships in affiliates’ MDU and retail stores designed to drive engagement and customer upgrades. Bright House Networks’ evp, operations Kevin Hyman has said Lindenman has “a strong sense of empathy and genuinely appreciates candor. He is very professional and maintains the optimum balance between the attributes noted yet is very persistent at the same time.” It’s that balance that we expect will propel Lindenman to even greater heights in the years to come.
