Why it matters: Based in Miami, Gil will report directly to Cesar Conde, Chairman, NBCUniversal International Group and NBCUniversal Telemundo Enterprises.

descarga-3NBCUniversal Telemundo Enterprises named Monica Gil to the newly created position of Executive Vice President of Corporate Affairs. In this new role, she will have oversight of the company's corporate communications, government relations, and community relations efforts.  In addition, she will also manage high-priority company-wide initiatives across all Telemundo Enterprises business units. Based in Miami, Gil will report directly to Cesar Conde, Chairman, NBCUniversal International Group and NBCUniversal Telemundo Enterprises.

Most recently, Gil was Senior Vice President and General Manager of Multicultural Growth and Strategy at Nielsen where she was responsible for driving growth, providing market insights and delivering comprehensive strategies to reach diverse consumer segments. As the highest-ranking Latina at Nielsen, she was instrumental in establishing best practices to capture and accelerate multicultural growth opportunities for Nielsen's numerous blue-chip clients. She joined the company in 2005 as Vice President, Communications, and was subsequently promoted to Senior Vice President, Public Affairs and Government Relations.

Before joining Nielsen, Gil served as a senior member of Antonio Villaraigosa's political campaign team and was part of his historic mayoral victory in 2005. She also served as Press Secretary for the Speaker of California State Assembly.  Her arrival to Telemundo Enterprises is a homecoming of sorts, since early in her career she was Director of Public Affairs and Community Outreach for KVEA Telemundo 52 in Los Angeles.

Gil has received numerous recognitions including Hispanic Business Magazine's 50 Influentials and Imagen Foundation's Most Powerful and Influential Latinos in Entertainment. She was named a "Women Making a Difference" by Los Angeles Business Journal and in 2012 she was inducted into the Hispanic Scholarship Hall of Fame.

Gil currently serves on the National Board of Directors for Girls Scouts USA, is a member of the Latino Advisory Panel to the Kennedy Center and a past Board Director of ProAmerica Bank. She has a B.A. in Political Science from the University of California Berkeley and an M.A. from the School of Public Administration.

"We are excited to have Monica join our team," said Conde.  "She brings a wealth of experience across community, public affairs and strategic insights in the media industry.  We look forward to having her contribute to the continued growth of NBCUniversal Telemundo Enterprises."
