Christy Shibata

Good career advice at any level: Make yourself indispensable. As a CFO for one of NBCU’s largest divisions, Shibata has done exactly that and now keeps close tabs on budgets and revenue for USA Network, Bravo, Syfy, E!, Oxygen, Universal Kids and Universal Cable Productions. Shibata held a number of financial management roles at General Electric before joining NBCU in 2005, and she’s regularly cited for her pivotal work in the transition of NBCU from GE’s ownership to Comcast. And just to keep things interesting away from the office, she and her husband own three Japanese restaurants in New York.
