Cesar Conde, most recently president of Univision, has joined NBCUniversal in the newly created role of executive vice president, reporting to CEO Steve Burke.

In his NBCU role, Conde, who served as president for Univision since 2009, will focus on business development, strategic priorities and special projects across the company’s portfolio. He will also oversee the international group, led by newly appointed chairman Kevin MacLellan.

At Univision since 2003, the company’s portfolio of networks grew under Conde’s tenure from three broadcast and cable nets to 14, with news and lifestyle net Fusion, a joint venture with ABC News, marking its first English-language network. Prior to his time there, he served as White House fellow for then-Secretary of State Colin Powell from 2002-2003.

“Cesar is an impressive business executive with both traditional and emerging media expertise,” said NBCU’s Steve Burke in a statement. “His experience leading multiple domestic and international businesses will be instrumental in maximizing all the opportunities to grow our portfolio.”
