Prior to her current role, Susan served Millenia 3 for seven years, overseeing the day-to-day operations of the Airplay Verification department and spearheading the research and product development that grew the capabilities and technology of the team. Before joining Millenia 3, Susan gained in-depth experience on the client side for six years, managing media production and deployment for a group of major cable networks including TBS and TNT. While there, she soaked up everything she could about the industry, from the operations of a television network to the vast landscape of marketing, before returning to the family business with a newfound passion for leadership and ingenuity.
The daughter of two career broadcasters, Susan’s passion for television, media and the entertainment business started before she could read or write. Susan’s first on-air experience came while she was still in pre-school, interrupting her father reading a Coca-Cola radio ad by announcing, “My daddy drinks Pepsi!” to all the listeners. Years later, Susan’s early exposure to the business evolved into her full-fledged passion for the industry that was passed down from her parents. Susan is determined to continue to grow Millenia 3 and build on its reputation of reliability, innovation and producing results.
