NBCU Names Marlene Sanchez Dooner EVP Hispanic Enterprises & Content

Marlene Sanchez Dooner

NBCU continues to build up its Hispanic executive ranks with the appointment of Marlene Sanchez Dooner to the newly created position of Executive VP, Hispanic Enterprises & Content (HEC).

Dooner will report to HEC chairman Joe Uva, former Univision prexy and CEO, who joined NBCU in April. His purview includes NBCU’s Spanish-language network Telemundo, which has been chipping away at the lead of Univision.

For the past 18 years, Dooner was Senior VP of Investor Relations at Comcast Corp, which she joined in 1995. She will move to NBCU’s offices in New York at the end of the year.

Her appointment comes barely a week after Univision Networks prexy Cesar Conde jumped to NBCU to take on a newly created executive position where he will oversee business development and projects across the company’s properties as well as NBC’s international operations.

Aside from working closely with UVA to develop the company’s Hispanic initiatives across all its networks and platforms, Dooner will tap her extensive background in finance to oversee financial planning, strategic initiatives and business development for the company’s Hispanic franchises, including Telemundo and youth-targeted network, mun2.
Before joining Comcast, Dooner was a VP at PNC Bank’s Communications Lending Group for 12 years.

She has a B.A. in Economics from St. Joseph’s University and an M.S. in Finance from Drexel University.
