Women in Entertainment 2010 - Power 100 List
Majoring in theology and medieval history at Scotland’s University of St. Andrews might not seem like the best breeding ground for an exec, but it seems to have worked for Menendez. “I studied Greek and Aramaic so I could read original documents,” she says. “I wanted to learn how time had lent certain passages nuances.” Now she can study contracts in a host of other languages she speaks — try English, French, Spanish and working knowledge of German. Today, the London-born Menendez runs 13 offices worldwide and sells drama series like The Event to more than 200 countries. She also has passed on her language skills to the two children — ages 21 and 20 — she raised as a single parent and who are both multilingual. “I’m still in shock to be where I am now,” she says.
