Home » Advisory Council » JESÚS GARCÍA-VALADEZ

Jesús García-Valadez leads Google’s Cultural Communications team, building and deploying communications strategies for Black, Latino, LGBTQ+ and Asian users and communities across the country. Over nearly a decade at Google, Jesus has served as first-ever Head of Hispanic Communications for Google & YouTube and as a founding member of Google’s Consumer Communications team. 

Jesus steers Google’s cultural strategy in collaboration with product, marketing and policy to advance key business priorities. Working closely with colleagues in public policy, philanthropy and DEI, Jesus has spearheaded multi-million dollar commitments to the Latino community via organizations including CHCI, UnidosUS, USHCC, Hispanic Federation and HACU. He has leveraged his deep relationships across the most important communications and media properties to champion Google’s most impactful social responsibility and business initiatives including the Latino Founders Fund, Election Tools in Spanish and Casa Google – a bespoke multi-state experience, connecting Latino media influencers with Google culture and technology. Most recently, he is driving a strategy to center cultural communities in the AI revolution in order to avoid what he terms a “digital divide 2.0.” 

Prior to Google, Jesus distinguished himself in agency and in-house roles for top brands including HP, Marriott and AT&T, where he was instrumental in launching cultural communications teams, best practices and initiatives. 

Jesus earned his Bachelor of Arts in Economics from San Diego State University and serves as a member of the Board of the Mission Preparatory School in the heart of San Francisco’s Mission District. He is an active member of the community across the Bay Area, most recently hosting students from Arise High School in Oakland’s Fruitvale neighborhood at Google. Jesús lives in San Francisco with his wife and two children, who they only speak to in Spanish.
