Richard Plepler
Title: Chairman & CEO, HBO
Years in Cable: 20+

Michael Lombardo
Title: President, Programming, HBO
Years in Cable: 20+

Under Lombardo and Plepler’s guidance, HBO remains in the news for all the right reasons, from having its largest subscription growth in 30 years to the potentially game-changing launch of HBO Now, which will make HBO available even to viewers who don’t have cable. Programming highlights including critical darlings “Veep” and “True Detective,” as well as noteworthy documentaries like “The Jinx” and “Going Clear,” helped generate the renewed interest in the brand. And last year “Game of Thrones” officially became the most-watched show in HBO history. In breaking with convention, Plepler and Lombardo continue to shape the course of premium cable.
