Cesar Conde will take control of NBCUniversal’s Spanish-media assets as Joe Uva, a veteran media executive who was once the chief executive of rival Univision Communications, is stepping aside.

Conde joined NBCU in 2013 as an executive vice president with a loosely-defined portfolio. He will now take the newly created position of Chairman, NBCUniversal International Group and NBCUniversal Telemundo Enterprises and have oversight of  Telemundo Network, NBC Universo Cable Network, Telemundo International, Telemundo Local Stations, Telemundo Digital Media and Emerging Business and NBC Deportes. Conde begins October 12 and will continue to report to Steve Burke, CEO, NBCUniversal.

Uva is expected to take an advisory role working on moving NBC Deportes from Hialeah, Florida,  to  NBC Sports Group’s  broadcast facility in Stamford, CT.  NBC Deportes produces all sports events for Telemundo, NBC Universo and the Hispanic digital platforms.

“A couple of months ago Joe and I began talking about his successor and we agreed that Cesar was the perfect choice,” Burke said in a statement. “Cesar and I have asked Joe to stay on as Senior Advisor for the next several months to help with the transition and the move of NBC Deportes to Stamford.”

Conde had been president at Univision. Before joining that company in 2003, he served as the White House Fellow for Secretary of State Colin L. Powell from 2002 to 2003. Before that, he worked at Salomon Smith Barney.
