Zel will assume her new post on Nov. 15, but she’ll leave MTV Latin America by the end of this month. MTV has not announced a replacement for Zel, who has spent 13 years with the company.

"Antoinette Zel leaves MTV Networks Latin America in an incredibly strong position, with great momentum for continued growth and leadership across the region," says Bill Roedy, president of MTV Networks International. "She has fostered a dynamic management team that will assume immediate and interim leadership of the business, reporting directly into me. On behalf of MTV Networks, I wish her the very best in her future endeavours."

In her new post, Zel will continue to be based in Miami.
