AMC Networks has promoted Jennifer Caserta to chief transformation and people officer, expanding her role to include company culture and employee development. She previously held the title of chief transformation officer.
Caserta will still be responsible for driving transformative strategies within the company and helping it reach its goals for long-term growth. She will be tasked with overseeing the company’s human resources, which includes employee relations, culture, compensation and benefits.
“As we continue to look for new ways to innovate and evolve as a company, we think placing a larger focus on the intersection of our people and culture and our overall business strategy will be an important component of our continued success,” said Josh Sapan, president and CEO of AMC Networks. “Jen has made significant contributions to our business and is uniquely qualified to lead the company in these important areas as we move forward.”
“With AMC Networks’ strong creative legacy, the company’s workforce has some of the most innovative and talented people in the business and I look forward to continuing to help drive the success of our company through the ongoing growth and development of our employees,” Caserta said. “I also look forward to ensuring that we continue to attract and cultivate the best talent while making sure our structure best positions the company to continue its strong track record of great storytelling and innovation.”
In addition to her role at AMC Networks, Caserta also sits on the board of several companies including RLJ Entertainment, Levity Entertainment Group, and Funny or Die. In her previous role, Caserta oversaw the implementation of AMC’s new management structure last year, when the company’s four networks, AMC, BBC America, IFC and SundanceTV were consolidated. Prior to joining AMC, Caserta was president and general manager of IFC.
