Grupo Televisa, S.A. is the largest media company in the Spanish-speaking world. Their shows are consistent to get high ratings, and they have been broadcasting internationally through partners like Univision. The success that the company is experiencing right now would not be possible without the assistance of Alfonso de Angoitia Noriega, the company’s current executive vice president. Alfonso de Angoitia Noriega has been with the company for so many years, and he is a close friend of Televisa’s executive vice president, Emilio Azcarraga Jean.

He met Emilio Azcarraga Jean when he served as his personal attorney, and then he was offered to join Televisa. He was given the position as a chief financial officer, working hard to lead the company in a positive light. He gave his assistance in restructuring the company after the father of Emilio Azcarraga Jean died, and because of his help, the company soared high and outperform its predecessors, and it gave back the full control of the company back into Emilio Azcarraga Jean’s hands.
Alfonso de Angoitia Noriega was appointed as the executive vice president after the company’s restructure. During his term as the vice president, he made a deal with Univision, amounting to $1.2 billion. He worked hard for months just to have the deal signed, and because of it, Televisa was given the access to the coveted US Hispanic Market. Alfonso de Angoitia Noriega was credited for turning this enormous deal in to reality. Because of this partnership, the value of the company rose, and their profit has risen exponentially.
