While Amanda Hill’s U.S. colleagues may occasionally have difficulty with the Queen’s English, they completely comprehend the U.K. transplant’s ability to wrap her creative mind around challenging cultural and technological shifts. As A+E Networks' Chief Marketing Officer, Amanda oversees global brand strategies for networks A&E, HISTORY, VICELAND and Lifetime among others, turning her teams' strategic visions into world-class brand equity, viewership and revenue. Unafraid of balancing the tried and true with innovation and risk taking, she's turning a diverse portfolio of networks into culturally resonant brands across multiple media platforms, from linear television productions to original content for social media. Before leaping across the Atlantic, she lead A+E Networks’ International team as Chief Creative Officer, and prior to that was with BBC Worldwide as Chief Brands Officer, developing the overarching brand strategy for all of BBC Worldwide's businesses and formats.
