NBCU gives duo a boost

Bockhaus, DiPalma named to newly created positions

NBCUniversal has upped Jay Bockhaus and Jared DiPalma to newly created positions in the conglom’s Entertainment & Digital Networks division. Bockhaus will work as exec veep of strategy and operations, while DiPalma takes the role of senior VP of finance. Both will report to the division’s recently appointed chief operating officer Salil Mehta.

Led by Lauren Zalaznick, the Entertainment and Digital Networks division includes the Women@NBCU suite of cablers and web components (Bravo, Oxygen, Style, iVillage), as well as NBCU’s Spanish-language broadcast net Telemundo and cable channel Mun2, along with several other NBCU holdings. Bockhaus will lead strategy and operational initiatives across that portfolio, while DiPalma is responsible for financial oversight of same.

Both will work with their new boss on Mehta’s mandate to grow the division’s digital businesses, which include iVillage, DailyCandy, Swirl and Fandango.

E&D has proven itself big on synergy, with Zalaznick pulling former Comcast cabler Style into the Women@NBCU suite, and murmurs among NBCUers about a push to get Mun2 onto cable music and lifestyle tiers, rather than keeping in the Spanish-language ghetto.”Jay brings impressive analytical ability and industry experience and Jared adds a wealth of great business acumen and accounting savvy.” said Mehta.
