Telemundo veteran executive Jackie Hernandez is departing the company on March 17, network executives said Friday.
Hernandez served in many strategic positions during her nearly decade tenure at the Spanish-language network, most recently as chief marketing officer. Hernandez also served in strategic executive positions across key areas of the NBCU-owned network including ad sales and digital media.
Hernandez, a 2013 Multichannel News "Wonder Women" honoree, joined Telemundo in 2008 as its COO, leading a rebrand of network and helping better position the network to reach its U.S.-based Hispanic target audience.
NBCUniversal International Group and NBCUniversal chairman Cesar Conde in an internal memo announcing Hernandez’s departure thanked her for her work and dedication to the company, calling her “a tremendous partner and friend.”
