Kim Goodwin’s Letter to ABC News Division:

Good Morning Team,

I am happy to announce Jose Andino is joining ABC News in a new role, Vice President – Office of the President & Process Management, based in New York.

In this role, Jose’s main objective will be the implementation of key initiatives and goals involving cultural change and business management. He will be pivotal in planning and managing the strategic direction of the Project Management Office (PMO), a newly formed office which will support and help execute my overall organizational and business goals. I will be clear about our goals. Jose and the PMO will work to help the organization meet them.  He will work with you to improve project management in all verticals, and help news leadership build high-impacting and executable strategies. He will maintain regular communication with executives and news division leaders to stay informed of all operational goals.

Most recently Jose served as the Senior Vice President of Human Resources at CBS News. In this role he was instrumental in driving cultural and leadership transformation while significantly increasing the diversity of the executive team. Jose was a key advisor to the President and executive team and implemented most of the race and culture initiatives for the division.

Prior to his time at CBS News, Jose served in several executive HR positions across media including: NBC Universal, Telemundo, CNBC, CNN and Mediapro.

Though Jose’s background has been HR, this is not an HR role. It is an executive process management role reporting directly to me. We have lots of moving parts, and Jose will help us as we continue to work toward becoming a more efficient organization where all can thrive.

I’ve known Jose for 20 years and watched him help transform the culture at several organizations through his focused but friendly approach.

Jose is a people person, an exceptional leader and creative problem-solver who will work hard to partner with all of you.

Please join me in welcoming him on August 16th.
