Biography

Noted for her skills in project development and for her literary acumen, Pennsylvania native Stacey Snider rose to prominence as one of the handful of female executives to run a major movie studio. Noted for taking a hands-on approach to a project, carefully shepherding it through each stage, she is also adept at maintaining an eye on business operations. This skill and her native intelligence and people skills have allowed her to earn the respect of the industry. Having accomplished the near impossible of taking a studio that was floundering in the late 1990s and turning it into a consistent box-office player landed Snider (and her boss Universal Studios president Ron Meyer) at the top of the annual list of the 101 most powerful people in entertainment compiled by Entertainment Weekly.
