Twitter had a major announcement yesterday when they announced that Debra Lee, CEO of BET, would be joining their Board of Directors.
“Thrilled to be joining the @twitter board,” Lee tweeted out yesterday. “It’s transformed the media and the world like few other things in history (and continues to)!!”
In addition to serving as BET’s CEO for the last 10 years, Debra Lee has had a well-respected career.
Before joining the network, Lee was an attorney at Steptoe & Johnson for five years, won the Vanguard Award from the National Cable & Telecommunications Association in 2003, as well as Woman of the Year Award from Women in Cable and Telecommunications in 2001. She also has a bachelor’s degree from Brown University and a master’s from Harvard’s JFK School of Government, as well as a law degree.
Is there any doubt that she was fit for a BoD spot at Twitter? We think not..
Congratulations to Debra Lee and Twitter on this new addition![Source]
