John Hsu

Recently promoted to his new role, Hsu wasted no time in getting to work. He has completed the refinancing of AMC Networks’ $700 million senior subordinated notes and spearheaded the company’s first-ever stock share buyback. Hsu is an influential member of the leadership team that has successfully charted the transformation to a leading content company. The savvy exec advises keeping an eye on OTT in the future. “Hulu is now transitioning from an ad-supported business to a pure subscription one,” Hsu says. “There will be a rush for traditional networks to embrace OTT.”
