Emilio Azcárraga of Grupo Televisa to receive Emmy Directorate Award
25 de abril de 2017
Emilio Azcárraga, chairman of the Board, president and CEO of Grupo Televisa, will receive the 2017 International Emmy Directorate Award, on Monday, November 20, in New York City.
“Emilio Azcárraga is a strategic and visionary leader- who has successfully and relentlessly navigated an increasingly competitive media landscape to grow his company’s businesses,” commented Bruce L. Paisner, president & CEO of the International Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.
Azcárraga has been at the helm of Televisa since April 1997. Under his leadership, the group has developed into a diversified and integrated media, telephone, cable and satellite pay television services company, in Mexico and across the world.
In January, Grupo Televisa and Univision Holdings, Inc. announced a strengthened and expanded relationship between the two companies, which will benefit from a single, integrated focus on the Hispanic audience in the US and the domestic Mexican audience.
“Television dissolved the borders between the US and Mexico a long time ago. Technology has allowed us to connect, to share our values and to get to know each other better as friends, partners and neighbors. Our countries are more than public policies that come and go, history brings us together and geography unites us. This recognition is proof that if we continue working to grow together, we can develop a promising shared future,” said Azcárraga.
