Hispanicize Media Group (HMG), the media company behind the annual Hispanicize marketing conference, has appointed Joe Uva Chairman and CEO.
Uva is the former President and CEO of Univision. He also held the position of Chairman of NBCU Hispanic Enterprises & Content. Earlier he was CEO of Omnicom media agency OMD Worldwide.
In his new role Uva is tasked with helping HMG develop more "authentic, relevant and cultured content" for brands looking to target multicultural millennials and Generation Z. His first order of business will be integrating the original HMG assets--the Hispanicize events, DiMe Media and Hispanic Kitchen--into the acquired platforms Exit 7 and LatinaMoms.com.
