Shareese Bembury-Coakley

Bembury-Coakley has been in media her entire career, and she’s quickly rising through the ranks. She moved to New York City without any network or industry contacts, and landed a spot in the prestigious NBCUniversal Page Program, which she says gave her the confidence to pursue her dreams of being in the industry wholeheartedly. “It exposed me to a diverse network of women of color who challenge, comfort, and push me to do my best work,” she says. Now at AMC Networks as the director of integrated marketing, she’s making waves and creating and executing numerous innovative and successful campaigns for top tier partners. Bembury-Coakley managed a partnership between BBC America’s “Killing Eve” and Klarna to create a first-of-its-kind campaign for the company, and at WE tv she sold and executed a talent-based branded content campaign with Geico for “Growing Up Hip-Hop.” She also serves as the co-chair of AMC Networks’ ERG group VIBE (Vested Interest in Black Employees), contributing to the growth and development of Black/African communities within the company.
