Charlie Collier has been recently appointed as a member of the San Jose Giants Board of Directors. He is currently president and general manager of AMC. Collier has led AMC since 2006, first as Executive Vice President and General Manager and as AMC's President and General Manager since 2008.
As President and General Manager of AMC, Collier oversees every aspect of the AMC brand, spearheading the multiplatform network, which is available on-air, online, on demand and via mobile applications. Under his leadership, AMC has garnered critical acclaim and record-breaking ratings driven by its breakout originals and inventive movie franchises. AMC reigns as the only cable network to win four consecutive Primetime Emmy® Awards for Outstanding Drama Series ("Mad Men" 2008-2011). It is also the only network ever to win the Golden Globe® Award for Best Television Series - Drama three years in a row ("Mad Men" 2008-2010). Additionally, AMC received the Peabody Award for television excellence two years in a row, first for "Mad Men" (2008) and then for "Breaking Bad" (2009). During Collier's tenure, AMC's digital arm has also delivered tremendous growth with AMCtv.com's web traffic experiencing exponential gains, the business expanding across multiple digital platforms, and acquisitions including critical favorites Filmsite.org and Filmcritic.com.
A veteran cable network executive, Collier joined AMC from Court TV (now truTV) with a track record of driving brand, revenue and business growth. At Court TV, he served as executive vice president and general manager of advertising sales where he more than quintupled its revenue from national ad sales, dramatically improved its position within the industry, and played a key role in broadening the network's appeal beyond courtroom programming and into entertainment programming in the investigation genre. During his time with Court TV, Collier's focus was on the union of content and sales. Prior to Court TV, Collier held senior roles at Oxygen Media, A&E Networks and TeleRep.
Among other accolades, Collier was honored with the 2009 Vanguard Award for Young Leadership, named to Crain's 40 Under 40 class of 2009, named one of the 2010 top ten television executives of the year by The Wrap, and has been on the CableFAX 100 list for five consecutive years.

Collier earned his Master in Business Administration degree from Columbia University and his Bachelor of Arts degree from Bucknell University. He is married and has four children.
