Univision Communications announced the addition of four new seasoned executives to its streaming team, in preparation for the launch of its two-tiered global platform. These new senior leaders will contribute to the new platform that will deliver high quality Spanish-language content to more than 600 million Spanish speakers worldwide.

"We continue to build the best streaming team at Univision, recruiting experts from across the globe to launch our next era of growth. I’m confident these new additions to the team will help strengthen our new products and services to captivate our audience. These new leaders will bring fresh perspectives, expertise, talent, and skillsets to an already stellar team of streaming executives, which were recently announced at Univision. We are fostering innovation, collaboration, inclusivity, and accountability, which are all central to our transformation,"  said Pierluigi Gazzolo, President and Chief Transformation Officer at Univision.

Roger Sole, Chief Marketing Officer, Streaming, will lead the marketing team in the development, growth, and creative approach for the future global streaming platform, including performance marketing, partner marketing integration, advertising, and all other streaming marketing efforts across all digital platforms.

Vincenzo Gratteri, Senior Vice President of Development, Streaming, will lead development and production of original Spanish language content. Gratteri has overseen hundreds of productions across his almost 20-year career in the industry, having started in Italy with Lux Vide, where he produced titles such as “Coco Chanel,” in partnership with Rai Fiction and France 2.

Adam Waltuch, Senior Vice President of Streaming Partnerships, will lead placement and growth through marketing partnerships with Univision’s global app distribution partners. He will work closely with the Distribution and Content Licensing teams to support the company’s future global streaming partnerships with MVPDs and vMVPDs in the United States and Latin America. Waltuch comes to Univision from Netflix, where he led teams responsible for fueling growth through distribution and brand partnerships, managing relationships with MVPDs, telcom companies, operators, and several consumer brands.

Lastly, Rita Chertorivski, Senior Vice President of Business and Legal Affairs, Streaming, will lead all partnership negotiations relating to the development and production of original content for streaming. She will also oversee all clearance and ancillary rights issues and advise on legal issues relating to streaming. Chertorivski is a seasoned, bicultural attorney licensed in both the United States and Mexico, where she began her career.

“Our soon-to-be launched global platform is the most exciting opportunity to build the world’s leading Spanish-language streaming service, and we are the only company prepared to deliver this offering. We are thrilled to bring this level of top talent to execute our vision successfully,”  Gazzolo continued.
