WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwired - January 23, 2017) - "We at the USHCC were excited to learn that Monica Gil will become the new Executive Vice President of Corporate Affairs at NBCUniversal Telemundo Enterprises. Her job will give her oversight of the company's corporate communications, government relations, and community relations efforts. In addition, Monica will manage key projects across all of Telemundo Enterprises business units.

USHCC President & CEO Javier Palomarez said: "We are proud of the close partnership with Comcast NBCUniversal Telemundo and we are pleased that they have named such a talented Latina to this prominent position within the organization. We know she will be extremely successful because her track record speaks for itself. Her work and career is a model for all women throughout our country. Congratulations, Monica and we look forward to working with you and hearing more about your accomplishments in the future!"

Previously, Gil was Senior Vice President and General Manager of Multicultural Growth and Strategy at Nielsen, where she created strategies designed to reach diverse consumers.
