Alfonso De Angoitia, Grupo Televisa’s Trump Card For Success

In Mexico, the media industry has become dominated by national brands and corporations that deliver high-quality news with an emphasis in factorial journalism and covering the daily stories of what is happening in Mexico and in the world.

One of the most prominent examples of a powerful news brand in the Spanish-talking country is the Televisa Group, or, in their mother language, Grupo Televisa. They became a reckoning force in all of the medias of Mexico and are a relevant name in every Mexican’s mind. Everybody in the country knows Grupo Televisa, because they are everywhere.

This enormous success can be studied and dated back to some of the major decisions of the group, mainly those under the command of the current President and the Executive Vice President of the group. Alfonso de Angoitia, who was born in 1962 and joined the team in 1997, holds the Vice President position and responsibility for much of the triumph of Grupo Televisa as a massive corporation.

He didn’t, obviously, start his career with Televisa as the Vice President of the group right from the beginning, but it didn’t take too much time to become one of the most prominent names in the industry. Alfonso joined the board of directors of the team and was already helping some of their major decisions with his take on it, demonstrating a big compromise with the future of the enterprise right from his entry. Suck dedication earned him the countless opportunities to climb the ranks of the corporation, which then led Alfonso de Angoitia to assume his role as the CFO, Chief Financial Officer, for four years, beginning in 1999.

The businessman is more than a simple financial leader for Grupo Televisa, as the employees of the high-end of the enterprise consider the man as the mastermind behind some of the strongest points of the company and a key participant in the enormous success that it has achieved since his entry.

Alfonso Angoitia has, in part of his triumph, a huge chunk of determination and experience in the business, but some co-workers believe that he is a natural in understanding the world of business and finances. According to the owner of Grupo Televisa, Emilio Azcárraga Jean, without Alfonso de Angoitia Noriego, Grupo Televisa could easily have fallen their ranks and lost the throne of the most watched news brand in all Spanish-speaking countries in the world to one of their competitors.
