Susanne Boyce

Susanne Boyce, president of programming/ chair of the CTV Media Group, Toronto

Noticed MTV Canada? Susanne Boyce was part of the team responsible for bringing it to Canada, a feat she’s particularly proud of. But Boyce has much, much more to brag about. In recent years, CTV has been unstoppable. As president of programming since 2001, Boyce made the channel all but unbeatable in the ratings war lining up winning shows such as Canadian Idol, Corner Gas and tapping into American fare such as the CSI franchise. Strategy’s sister publication Playback named her its Person of the Year in 2005.

She joined CTV in 1995 as director of production and development and was SVP programming from 1997 to 2001, after which she assumed her current post.
