A+E boss Heather Jones: women are under-represented in the boardroom

Heather Jones is living proof that a working-­class, non-metropolitan woman can make it to the top in TV. But, after listening to her recount her life story, you can’t help thinking that she was always bound to succeed.

As UK General Manager she oversees A+E Networks’ UK channels including HISTORY, Lifetime, Crime + Investigation and the recently launched BLAZE. A+E Networks UK is a joint venture with Sky and also operates across central and Eastern Europe, Benelux, Nordic countries, Middle East and Africa.
