    Anne Globe
    Chief marketing officer, DreamWorks Animation

    Globe is in overdrive these days as DreamWorks Animation manages the opening of Rise of the Guardians and the beginning of DWA's new distribution deal with 20th Century Fox (Guardians, which got off to a slow start over the Thanksgiving weekend, is the final film to be released by Paramount). Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted was a summer hit, grossing $740.5 million worldwide. Globe, 49, has been perfecting her marketing chops at DWA for seven years and is a confidante of boss Jeffrey Katzenberg. She's an avid moviegoer on weekends and is known for using her 11-year-old daughter as a litmus test. The studio business is a family affair -- her husband, Brad Globe, is president of worldwide consumer products at Warners.

    Moment I knew I wanted to work in the business: When I started doing the weather report on the local station in my hometown.

    Favorite way to unwind on the weekend: Watching the Buffalo Bills even when they don't win, which is most of the time.

    Most surprising song on my iPod: "Boyfriend" by Justin Bieber. What can I say? I have an 11-year-old daughter.

    Best advice I've ever gotten: Make your point succinctly. In other words, know when to stop talking.
