This rock-solid team of NBCU veterans keeps business booming at 30 Rock. Bond and Budill continue to work in unison as they close deals and negotiate the best possible distribution agreements, such as the global portfolio deal with Charter, to bring increased revenue to the company. Another success this past year for them was securing distribution for “The Olympics Channel: Home of Team USA” across MVPDs and vMVPDs. Meanwhile, Manfredi oversees off-net TV and film distribution to cable and new media platforms, a business that brings in more than $1 billion in annual revenue.
