Former Comscore, Univision Communications Leaders Join NBCU

Two new members of the Advertising and Communication Partnerships team are welcomed to NBCUniversal. One of the new hires is the former head of corporate communications at Comscorewhere he guided the company’s external and internal brand communications with a primary focus on its media measurement narrative.

The other new hire is a former senior associate for corporate communications at university.

Neil Ripley, formerly of Comscore, now serves as vice president of communications for NBCUniversal’s advertising and partnerships division. He will officially step into this role on Monday, March 14.

Ripley’s duties will focus on topics he is very aware of: ad tech, data, and cross-platform media measurement.

In parallel, Margaux Fleuranges serves as a senior director, leading executive thought leadership and social media strategy.

She comes to NBCUniversal with nearly 10 years of combined in-house and agency experience. At Univision, Fleuranges led external communications for its local media division and social media strategy for Univision’s corporate B2B accounts. Prior to joining Univision, Fleuranges worked at public relations agencies including Rubenstein PR and Tractenberg & Co.

NBCUniversal’s Advertising and Partnerships division hosts the recently launched consumer data and identity platform, NBCUnified, and has just entered into a “test and learn partnership” with I spot to quantify and unify multi-screen media consumption, reach and impressions on its single platform for the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics and Super Bowl LVI.

Ripley began his career as a researcher and editor at Congressional Quarterly.
