2019 saw Harris take a step into the Comcast universe for the first time, as she now heads the company’s international business following its acquisition of Sky. That’s in addition to her responsibilities at NBCU overseeing legal issues across all divisions. Luckily, government affairs is Harris’ sweet spot, and it keeps her excited to come into the office each day. She worked in the White House from 2010-12 during the Obama administration, eventually becoming the principal deputy counsel and deputy assistant to the president. “I really cherish the time that I spent in the White House—it set my career in an entirely new direction,” Harris said in an employee spotlight. “I never got over the thrill of being in the West Wing, and I feel that way about NBCUniversal, too.”
