One Word that Best Describes Me: Curious

The definition of maximizing teamwork for the win, ESPN’s front line of execs celebrated another banner year in 2015 and are on their way to setting new records. Driessen’s strong business acumen played an important role in the company’s broadband Internet strategy and multimedia programming rights agree­ments. With Kosner at the helm, ESPN Digital Media celebrated its best year ever, breaking its own sports category record in reaching 94.4 million fans in September alone. Donoghue has been expanding her strategy role, driving Fivethirtyeight to traffic highs and pushing new boundaries with ESPN Films. Erhardt, elevated in last May, is leading a bountiful sales team and also developing an insights-driven marketing and data organization to support them.
