David Beck has been named Vice President/General Manager of Social Media for Univision. He’ll report to Mónica Talán, SVP of Corporate Communications and Public Relations.

Univision currently connects with its audience on multiple social media platforms – from Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, to GetGlue, Viggle, and Foursquare, and across its forums.

David was previously VP of Strategic Initiatives for the Office of the CEO at Univision.  Prior to joining Univision in 2009, he was with Bain & Company where he worked in the Media and Private Equity practices.  Before that, he held strategy and business development roles at MTV Networks and Viacom, and was an M&A Investment Banker.
