Arlene Shapiro has been with Shout! since 2007 and excels in her current role as Senior Vice President of Royalties and Income Tracking. She built and continues to lead an incredibly capable department that deals with the growing demands of our business as they compile and administer royalty payments to hundreds of program licensors and royalty recipients from studios, producers, independents, and talent. Arlene coordinates and executes Shout!'s response to the ever-growing range of rights, deal structures, and licensor relationships that a multiplatform entertainment company must contend with. She ensures that revenue is being properly disclosed and maintains our royalty systems to allow correct and effective reporting.
