EVP, NBCUniversal

When Univision beat NBC in the February Sweeps, it got noticed. And when it beat all the broadcast nets in July Sweeps, it really got noticed. Enter NBCU, which lured Conde away from Univision in September. His newly created position has him focusing on business development, strategic priorities and special business projects across the NBCU portfolio. He also oversees the International Group, led by newly appointed chairman Kevin MacLellan. We’re keenly interested to see what sort of stamp Conde puts on NBCU—especially considering his 10-year run at Univision and his role co-founding the Futuro Program, a nonprofit that provides role models and educational workshops to Hispanic high school students. It’s an exciting hire for NBCU, as well as for the entire TV industry. And so how does Conde define diversity? “Diversity is all encompassing. It means having diverse backgrounds, ideas and experiences all represented at the decision-making table. That’s how I believe great teams are built and in turn succeed,” he says.
