President & COO, HBO
Eric Kessler doesn’t green-light HBO’s iconic shows like Girls and Game of Thrones. But he’s the one in charge of getting them in front of viewers, by heading up distribution in both the U.S. and abroad. That includes HBO Go, HBO’s authenticated streaming service — the one many people say they’d like to pay for without getting a pay-TV subscription. Kessler joined HBO in 1986 as a marketing manager, and eventually launched the “It’s Not TV. It’s HBO.” campaign, which won the very first Emmy Award for a commercial.
