100 Women We Love: Class of 2006

Lisa Sherman
When Sherman became senior vice-president and general manager of LOGO, she brought with her decades of experience. She served as a senior executive at Verizon Communications for 17 years, and senior vice-president at New York agency Hill, Holliday, Connors, Cosmopoulos. Of her work at gay cable channel LOGO, Sherman said, “I think it’s another milestone for the LGBT community securing its place in the American experience. Our stories are rich, vibrant and convey not just the human emotions of love, loss and hope, but the uniquely American values of freedom, independence and diversity.” In addition to Sherman’s work at LOGO, she is proud to have fulfilled her childhood dream at her 2003 “big Jewish wedding day with me and my partner Sophie elevated on chairs above the crowd during the traditional Hora dance.” She advises aspiring execs to network respectfully, hold on to your beliefs, and “do something that’s meaningful to you.”
