Christina Spade

Spade’s star has risen quickly at AMC Networks. She was upped in September from COO/CFO to her current role, succeeding Matt Blank and becoming one of the industry’s only female CEOs. As she spearheads the company’s expansion via targeted streaming services and strong-owned IP, she manages day-to-day operations through a DEI lens that ensures support for diversity across the company and the content it puts forth.

“A quote I draw inspiration from is Sam Snead’s ‘Always play against par.” It encapsulates all that one needs to do to be successful, which is to dig deep within yourself and along with your team to define success and execute strongly to achieve it. The competition is the definition of excellence and not the other players of the game necessarily.”

What makes this industry a good fit for you? I love an exceptional entertainment experience! Storytelling at its best is mesmerizing and catalyzes connections within yourself and with others. I am proud to be a part of the premium and quintessential storytelling at AMC Networks.
