Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer has appointed former Univision exec Kevin Conroy (pictured) to the newly created role of president of digital and new platforms.

Reporting to Mark Burnett, president of MGM Television and Digital Group, Conroy will oversee all initiatives for new and emerging platforms. In addition, he will be charged with developing original short-form digital content, and cultivating partnerships for virtual and augmented reality experiences while leading MGM’s faith-based and OTT efforts.

Conroy most recently spent seven years at Univision, where he served as chief strategy and data officer. In this role, he was responsible for identifying priority growth initiatives and developing the company’s big data strategy.

Prior to this, he held a number of roles during his eight-year tenure at AOL, including executive VP of global products and marketing, chief operating officer for AOL Broadband, and held senior VP and GM titles for AOL Entertainment and AOL Music.

Conroy previously served as chief marketing officer and president of new technology for BMG Entertainment and VP of marketing for CBS/FOX Video.

“I’ve known Kevin for more than a decade and we have created some great innovative content together,” said Burnett in a statement. “Kevin is the perfect seasoned executive who will use his innovative instincts, knowledge and experience, to optimize our MGM content and propel our digital brand.”
