Spanish-language broadcaster Univision Communications on Friday said it named Andrew Hobson as chief financial officer, replacing Jeffrey Hinson, who is leaving to pursue other interests in Dallas, where he and his family live.

Mr. Hobson previously was senior executive VP and chief strategic officer at Univision, titles he will continue to hold as he adds the CFO role to his responsibilities. He continues to report to Univision Chairman and CEO A. Jerrold Perenchio.

Mr. Hobson first joined Univision in 1993 as an executive VP. From 1990-93, Mr. Hobson was a principal at Chartwell Partners, after serving six years as a VP in the investment banking group at Bankers Trust.

Mr. Hinson has agreed to be available to the company through the end of the year to assist with the transition to Mr. Hobson’s leadership.
