Turner, who is president of Advertising Sales & Marketing for the company, will retire at the end of the year. Univision will announce leadership transition plans in the coming weeks.
Turner has spent 40 years in the media industry and been with UCI since 2012, where he has developed the advertising sales team, activated more than 600 brands across all platforms, and built on the company’s strong service for the Hispanic community across America. Turner has received many honors in his career. He has been inducted into the Broadcasting & Cable Hall of Fame, named among the Adweek 50, and presented with the Visionary Leader Award by The National Kidney Foundation.
“Keith is a uniquely talented individual who has been a friend and an inspiring leader to all who have had the opportunity to work with him,” said Randy Falco, president and CEO of UCI. “He is a devoted promoter of the UCI brand and is responsible for breaking many boundaries in expanding our partnerships over the last five years. We are immensely grateful for his contributions to our success. I know that I speak for the entire UCI family in wishing Keith the very best as he prepares for his retirement at the end of this year.”
Turner said, “It has been a pleasure and privilege to work alongside Randy and the rest of the superb Univision team for the past five years and I will leave here feeling proud of all that we’ve accomplished together. This is an extraordinary organization with a leading market position and loyal audience that is unmatched in the industry.”
Prior to joining UCI, Turner served as the senior vice president of Media Sales and Sponsorship at the NFL.
