Rachel Richman is a highly driven sales and marketing leader with more than ten years of experience in entertainment, sports and consumer packaged goods, most notably with Showtime Networks, Universal Sports and Teleflora.
Whether she is creating integrated marketing campaigns, developing new business, negotiating contracts or managing partnerships, Rachel approaches all tasks from a strategic, results-driven perspective. She offers a collaborative management style that is easy (and fun!) to work with, and believes the best way to achieve results is to clearly communicate expectations.
As a skilled project manager, Rachel enjoys juggling multiple tasks at once and thrives in high pressure circumstances. She is trustworthy and reliable, and well-versed in overseeing the development and execution of project plans, delivering results on time and within budget.
An avid athlete herself, Rachel always looks for ways to get involved in sports and jumped at the opportunity in 2013 to work for Universal Sports, an arm of NBC Universal and the only 24/7 Olympic sports channel. During her time at the cable network, she expanded distribution by negotiating new carriage agreements with TV distributors and executing impactful B2B and B2C marketing campaigns. Given a limited marketing budget, Rachel leveraged relationships with National Governing Bodies and video distributors (e.g. DIRECTV, Time Warner Cable, Verizon FiOS) to find creative ways to reach larger audiences and provide greater exposure for the sports and the athletes showcased by the network.
Originally from Solvang, California, Rachel traded aebleskivers and windmills for freeways and palm trees when she moved to the city to pursue an undergraduate degree at UCLA, and since then has slowly been moving closer to the ocean. A long time west-sider, Rachel enjoys playing tennis, frequenting coffee shops and teaching her dog Lucy to not chase birds, a task at which she has not yet been successful.
