Top Women in PR: Trisha Cardoso

Trisha Cardoso, Executive Vice President, Corporate Communications, Showtime Networks Inc. 

Trisha is a visionary leader at Showtime, inspiring and motivating the entire company to think outside of the box. Her amazing press contacts have helped secure publicity for the network, including President David Nevins being honored on the cover of Variety as their Showman of the Year last year. Under her leadership, the network has made history, broken records and been honored with the most nominations ever in the network's history across a number of series, miniseries and documentaries. Cardoso has overseen the launches of the network's top-rated series, including Homeland, Shameless, House of Lies, and Ray Donovan.

Trisha also led the announcement of Showtime's launch on the Internet. This new streaming service marks Showtime’s foray into the future, allowing the opportunity for many more subscribers and the chance to reach a younger demographic that has cut the cable cord. She planned the entire launch and coordinated with partners like Apple, Roku, PlayStation and Hulu. She is also currently developing a strategy surrounding upcoming announcements with additional distributors.
