Claire was on the founding team of Israel Cable Programming (ICP), which launched the Israel cable industry in 1990.
In her years at ICP, Claire was the Vice President of Acquisitions, in charge of all foreign content needed for Channel 3 and the Movie Channel. In her capacity, Claire was able to learn and understand the industry and developed special contacts with the major studios, relationships she still has today. She formed her own company, Spike, in 2000, and specialized in building and localizing foreign channels. Today, she is considered a leading channel management professional, with a special aptitude for launching and growing channels, and maintaining costs without consumer knowledge of small budgets.
Claire makes channels successful by recognizing and securing critical foreign content, or identifying local production needs, scheduling effectively, and building an effective, audience-responsive marketing package.
