Grupo Televisa is the largest TV network and media company in the Spanish speaking world. They have been in the business for so many years, and they have been consistent in becoming Latin America’s number one channel. Despite the popularity and the success that Grupo Televisa has been experienced through all these years, they are not exempt from challenges that arise internally, as well as externally. Grupo Televisa once had a problem with their internal structuring, and because of the weak leadership inside the company, their profit and shares were affected, leading them into near bankruptcy. However, because of the vision of one man, the company was saved from its imminent downfall and they managed to get back, and return stronger than ever. The key person in the revival of Grupo Televisa’s influence in the Latin American world is Alfonso de Angoitia Noriega. He is the company’s executive vice president, and has been with the company for a very long time. He is a very close friend of Emilio Azcarraga Jean, the company’s present chief executive officer.
During the time when Grupo Televisa is in great crisis, the company is actually looking for alternative ways on how they can survive the threats that the company is facing. Alfonso de Angoitia Noriega decided that a company restructuring would be the best thing to do. They managed to control the problems inside the company when Alfonso de Angoitia Noriega lead the restructuring of the company. After the seats were vacated, Emilio Azcarraga Jean managed to get hold of their family business and he is responsible for the promotion of Alfonso de Angoitia Noriega into the vice president’s seat.
Aside from the contribution of Alfonso de Angoitia Noriega in the restructuring of the Grupo Televisa Company, he also helped in the signing of the deal between his company and Univision. This gigantic deal opened the opportunity for Grupo Televisa to tap into the homes of millions – especially those who are Latin American in ethnicity. The $1.2 billion dollar landmark deal between Grupo Televisa and Univision will be used to improve their TV Signal on both towns, and be able to save the company from its immediate closure. Everything would not happen if not for someone like Alfonso de Angoitia Noriega.
