Starz Encore promotes two exex to senior VP

Nittler to o'see new media sales, Wachendorf cable sales

John Malone’s Starz Encore Media Group has awarded senior VP stripes to two of its sales/affiliate-relations staffers, Leslie Nittler and Jillaina Wachendorf.

Nittler, whose title is senior VP of new media sales and affiliate relations, will supervise a staff of 25 who sell the Starz Encore collection of 13 movie channels to direct broadcast satellite, wireless cable, phone companies, video providers and hotels and motels. Nittler joined Encore Starz as VP of new-media sales in 1994 after serving as an area sales manager for the Ford Motor Co.

Wachendorf becomes senior VP of cable sales and affiliate relations, overseeing a staff of 50 responsible for selling the movie networks to such cable-operator giants as AT&T, Cox, Comcast and Media One.

Wachendorf, an eight-year veteran of Starz Encore, started her career as director of affiliate services for Pro Am Sports System.
