Prior to becoming CEO, Monroe served as chief marketing officer (CMO) for National Geographic Channels U.S. As CMO, she managed the Channel’s brand and all aspects of marketing — including brand strategy, creative, consumer marketing, digital platforms, social media, partnership marketing, ad sales marketing and licensing & merchandising. She also oversaw consumer and trade communications. Under her leadership, NGC launched unprecedented marketing campaigns forKillingKennedy, which garnered the highest total viewership in network history; and the Emmy-nominated Brain Games, the highest-rated series launch for the channel. She was also the driving force behind the popular franchises Wicked Tuna and Doomsday Preppers.

Before joining National Geographic Channels U.S., Monroe was executive vice president, Consumer Marketing and Digital Platforms, for Home Box Office, responsible for the marketing of the HBO and Cinemax brands and their programming across all platforms. 

Monroe began her career at HBO as manager, Advertising, in 1998, overseeing the campaigns for all HBO series and sports programming, and was named director, Advertising, in 2000. One year later, she was promoted to vice president, Advertising, and in 2002, her responsibilities expanded to include overseeing all HBO advertising campaigns. In 2004, she became senior vice president, Advertising, and two years later, she was named senior vice president, Consumer Marketing, assuming a broader role with the addition of digital and licensing and retail. From 2008 to 2011, she served as executive vice president, adding Home Entertainment marketing to her responsibilities.

During her tenure at HBO, Monroe oversaw award-winning marketing campaigns for many of HBO’s highest-profile properties, such as Sex and the City, The Sopranos, Entourage, True Blood, Boardwalk Empire, Game of Thrones, the HBO miniseries The Pacific and many more. She also led the development, deployment and marketing of HBOGO and MAXGO, the company’s digital streaming services.

Before joining HBO, Monroe held marketing positions at American Express and Salomon Brothers, and also worked in account management at BBDO.
