Penthera elects Griffith to board
Penthera’s board of directors recently elected Melani Griffith to its board of directors.
Penthera hired Griffith, who formerly worked with Penthera president and CEO Michel Willner at Insight Communications, last year as its executive vice president of business development.
“Melani’s energy, industry knowledge and strategic thinking will be a welcome addition to our board,” said Willner. “At Insight, she was responsible for managing our video product and negotiating the deals with our programming partners. Her career has given her deep understanding into distributor, programmer and advertiser issues. She will be an invaluable member of our board.”
Prior to Time Warner Cable buying Insight, Griffith was senior vice president of programming and video product at Insight. She also ran the eastern division for affiliate sales at AMC Networks and was an account executive in advertising sales for Fox Cable Networks.
Griffith recently served on the national board of directors of Women in Cable Telecommunications.
