Alfonso de Angoitia is an Executive Vice President who has contributed immensely to the growth and development of his company, Grupo Televisa. He is known to be one of the top media executives in the field and has worked extremely hard to get to where he is today. Before he started working in the field of media, he was a lawyer who worked at one of the largest law firms in New York City. Being a corporate lawyer, he had numerous clients coming from within the United States, and outside as well. After spending a good amount of years working at someone else’s law firm, he decided to start up his own.
It was soon after founding his law firm that he took on Grupo Televisa as one of his clients. He worked closely with the CEO and then Vice President of the company, as well as the other executives in the field. He assisted them with their legal council and soon went on to work for Grupo Televisa because of the incredible experience he had with them. When he came to Grupo Televisa, he was given the position of Chief Financial Officer. The position was a good fit for him because he had an incredible amount of knowledge with the financial standings of a company owing to him being a corporate lawyer for so many years. He was in this position for a total of four years before he was promoted to the post of Executive Vice President of the company. When he became the Vice President of the company, he brought along numerous changes to the company, which helped it grow and expand its audience. Today, Televisa does not only have channels in Mexico but also in the United States to air their shows to their viewers there.
Even though Alfonso de Angoitia spent so much time working in the field of law, he did not let that stop him from attaining a high position in the field that he switched to. He has always believed in constantly gaining knowledge through everything that he does, which is what has helped him be a brilliant leader to Televisa.
