For decades now, the Mexican media industry has been dominated by the Televisa Group. Since 1973, the company has produced a variety of news, entertainment, and sports content for the close to 130 million individuals that call Mexico. Additionally, the tremendous growth experienced by the company in the last few years have driven it to become the dominant multi media force in the Spanish-speaking world. Today, the company broadcasts directly into 19 South American countries, and some of its more popular programs are also shown in Spanish and non-Spanish speaking countries all around the world.
One of the men that have guided Grupo Televisa to its current position of market dominance is Alfonso de Angoitia Noriega. Noriega is the current Executive VP of the Televisa Group. He is privileged to be among the independent members of the company’s Board of Directors. Before joining the Televisa group in 1991, Noriega previously worked as an attorney at a number of law firms in the USA and Mexico. The last law firm he worked for Mijares, Angoitia, Cortes, and Fuentes, where he was one of the founding partners. Before that, he had briefly worked at New York-based White and Chase LLP. He also briefly worked as the personal counsel to Emilio Azcárraga, the current Chief Executive Officer of the Televisa Group. Owing to their rich history, Noriega is one of Mr. Azcárraga’s most trusted advisers.
Quite the considerate and giving individual, Alfonso de Angoitia Noriega has also tried giving back to the society through a number of undertakings. He has long been a member of the Mexican Foundation for Health AC (FUNSALUD) as well as the Chairman of the Board of Trustees at the Kardias AC Foundation. Over the years, he has also been an avid supporter of youth education and was a long term member of the American School Foundation’s Board of Trustees.
