TelevisaUnivision appoints president of US networks

Ignacio ‘Nacho’ Meyer

US-based Spanish-language giant TelevisaUnivision has promoted Ignacio ‘Nacho’ Meyer to president of US networks.

Based in Miami, he will report directly to CEO Wade Davis, and will lead the expansion of the company’s TV networks in the States.

Meyer spent more than a decade at US-based Univision, which officially completed its $4.8bn merger with Mexican media giant Televisa earlier this year.

In his most recent role, he led the music and non-scripted entertainment division at TelevisaUnivision, driving the group’s global strategy. He managed unscripted programming, including primetime music award shows, reality shows and specials.

Meyer also led the strategic business efforts for the music, music publishing, sound design team and artist development in the US, the talent commercialization and licensing business units, and the music and sound design team for the networks and studio.

“I am excited and energized for what’s to come under Nacho’s leadership and guidance,” said Davis. “Throughout his career at the company, Nacho has helped to cement Univision as a key partner to the entertainment, and Latin music ecosystem, super-serving audiences, building business opportunities, bringing to life today’s best productions, with the biggest artists and tomorrow’s rising stars across the record-setting network TV properties, adrenaline-fueled events, and fast-growing digital platforms.”

“I am humbled and thrilled to be a part of this magnificent transformation,” added Meyer. “I am committed to driving innovation across our networks and brands, alongside our world-class leadership and best-in-class teams, including our content engine in Mexico.”
