About BarryGribbon

To Whom it May Concern, I am seeking a new challenge to grow a company, product, division or team by using my 20 plus years of management leadership skills. I lead and manage media companies, studios and production divisions. I facilitate all aspects of content production, operations and finance. I have managed hundreds of projects across all media platforms. My tasks include client relations, staffing, talent management and brand integration. I joined Scripps Networks as Executive in Charge to oversee series productions for HGTV, Food Network, DIY Network, and A&E. At Homerun Entertainment, I manage all productions for brands and networks. At Deca and Homerun, I’ve built strategic partnerships to produce branded entertainment. I’ve partnered on projects for YouTube, Facebook and Zillow. And I’ve produced for brands including Gallo Wines, Huggies, Coca-Cola, Pepsi, Ragu, Kraft and Kia Motors. My network productions will include work with TruTV, Discovery, TLC, TV One, Starz, Reelz, CBS, Fox Network, DisneyWorld, Litton Entertainment and others. Our Food Network series, “The Best Of” and “Food Finds.” each ran 6 years and we produced 16, one-hour specials. I thrive when challenged to build something better, faster and stronger. I have the experience to foresee long term growth of a business, division, or studio. I’m a proven team leader - always driving my staff on a clear pathway forward with purposeful acceleration.
