Ray Hopkins, ViacomCBS

Years in Media & Broadband: 32

Education: BA, Gettysburg College; Kellogg Graduate School of Management at Northwestern University

My personal superpower is: Doing tough deals and maintaining strong relationships

My proudest professional achievement over the past 12 months is… forming a newly integrated ViacomCBS distribution team and having the team pulling off a large deal flow year flawlessly from home.

What habit are you keeping post-pandemic? Working out at home more regularly

Your comfort TV binge? Nothing beats live sports for my money

Your personal D&I epiphany? ViacomCBS has and continues to provide excellent and much needed DE&I training. As part of that, understanding more fully “unconscious bias” I found to be a great learning experience.
