In October 2015, Dubuc oversaw the joint venture agreement with Vice Media that launched VICELAND in 2016 and led to a 20% stake in Vice Media Holdings, of which she is now a member of the Board of Directors.
Dubuc’s vision to expand the depth and reach of the A+E Networks brand has led to strategic investments in the award-winning digital cooking brand Panna, the pay-TV streaming service TV Player, production companies Propagate and Superb, and The Front, a female-founded online video network and content studio.
In May 2016, Dubuc launched 45th & Dean, a multi-platform storytelling hub, full service studio and social media agency which develops content for all A+E Networks’ brands and advertising partners.
This past year, Dubuc also oversaw a historic partnership between Lifetime and the National Women’s Soccer League, securing an equity stake in the league and a three-year broadcast agreement.
In 2013, Dubuc received the NCTA Vanguard Award for Distinguished Leadership.
