Lisa Williams Fauntroy

In addition to structuring and negotiating programming and development deals for Discovery Channel, Animal Planet and Science Channel, in the past year Williams-Fauntroy also has begun managing the business and legal affairs of those networks. A forward-thinking attitude combined with her depth of knowledge about Discovery and its networks makes Williams-Fauntroy a valuable asset to the overall company. Despite a demanding work schedule, she makes supporting Washington, D.C.’s Duke Ellington School of the Arts a personal priority. “The school is a gem and educates and supports the city’s most talented students with a robust and strong arts and academic program,” she says.
