While inclusion in Worldwide Branding is an honor, only a small selection of members in each discipline are chosen for this distinction. These special honorees are distinguished based on their professional accomplishments, academic achievements, leadership abilities, years of service, and the credentials they have provided in association with their Worldwide Branding membership.
Ms. Cunningham has 31 years of professional experience, and, since August 2013, became content manager for an exciting project in new business development at technology giant, Altech Multimedia (Pty) Ltd. With nearly 24 years as head of acquisitions at M-Net, Multichoice and three years as senior vice president at On Digital Media, which is now Starsat, she has established herself as an expert in cross-media acquisitions, content knowledge, industry relationships, scheduling, marketing, negotiation, organizational and strategic management expertise.
