Liz Jenkins is the Chief Business Officer for NBCUniversal Studio Group. In this role, she oversees strategy and business operations across the company’s Film and Television Studios.

Prior to this role, Jenkins served as Chief Operating Officer at Reese Witherspoon’s multimedia company Hello Sunshine. During her tenure she oversaw finance, business affairs, operations, physical production, and music as well as facilitating the growth of the company’s business, including their content and direct-to-consumer businesses — all of which put women or girls at the center of each narrative.

Previously, Jenkins served as the Head of Strategic Ventures for Sony PlayStation and Senior Vice President of Corporate Development and Strategy at Media Rights Capital where she developed and implemented innovative distribution models, strategic partnerships and new businesses across film and television.
