“His goals, objectives and the results he has achieved have always been ‘the center of the bull’s-eye,’ and his loyalty, integrity and dedication to the success of our company are beyond reproach,” he added.
Perenchio continued, “I am certain that, in his new position as president and chief operating officer of Univision Communications, Ray will lead the charge to ensure that our company maintains its undisputed position as the No. 1 Spanish-language media company in the United States, while each of our businesses continues to excel and achieve greater successes in the future.”
