Henry Molina Appointed as Associate Vice President in UVU’s University Marketing and Communications


OREM, Utah — Former Nike executive Henry Molina has been appointed as associate vice president of Marketing and Communications at Utah Valley University, effective October 21, 2019. Molina’s position is an additional associate vice president inside University Relations, alongside Stephen Whyte who is now the associate vice president of University Relations.

Before joining UVU, Molina was a senior communications director for the Global Operations Team at Nike, where he led internal and external messaging for the company’s chief operations officer, and the technology, manufacturing, supply chain, sourcing, and procurement areas. He was with Nike for almost 22 years in brand and communications positions. Prior to Nike, he worked for other global brands such as Levi Strauss and AT&T.

“Henry will be a tremendous addition to our marketing and communication teams,” said Cameron Martin, vice president of University Relations. “He is a talented communicator with extensive international experience running global communications campaigns. Hiring Henry is a game changer for UVU — we are fortunate to have him on our team.”

Molina is a seasoned veteran in managing diverse, international communication teams in many countries, geographies, and territories. He is a passionate storyteller whose voice and writing have generated awareness, inspiration, and commitment in branding, marketing, and culture-building campaigns.

He was a student at Utah Valley Community College (UVU) in 1987, received a bachelor’s degree in advertising from Brigham Young University, and a master’s degree in marketing communications from Northwestern University.

“When I came to UVCC as a student, I was a young man with dreams but not a lot of direction,” said Molina. “This college met me where I was, equipped me with the tools I needed to succeed, and opened doors for me to achieve my dreams. I built a network of peers and mentors that to this day have helped me solve problems independently and work in diverse environments throughout the world.”
