There has been a notable revolution in the Mexican media industry and now, unlike before, the media is bolder when it comes to expressing any various number of pressing topics, their political inferences aside. This revolution has encouraged a growing viewership and the industry can now boast of more than 4 million cable television subscribers and 1.5 million satellite television subscribers. This has been encouraged by the numerous radio and television stations as well as newspapers and magazines.
Several companies have been recognized as top media companies in Mexico, but the three most consistent ones are Grupo Televisa, S.A.B, MVS Communicaciones and Grupo Reforma. Grupo Televisa, which has been in business since the mid 50’s has been ranked top among the Spanish broadcasters, making profits of close to a billion US dollars each year. The company under the leadership of Salvi Rafael Folch Viadero, who is the Vice President of Finance and Administration director, the company has an estimated worth 5.3 billion dollars by 2012.
Salvi Rafael Folch Viadero has been the Vice President and Administration director of Grupo Televisa S.A.B. since April 2014. He has also served in the ranks of Former Vice President of Financial Planning of Grupo Televisa, Former Director General and Former Director of Commerce Finance Mas SA de Cv, also the Former Vice President of the National Banking and Securities Commission.
Televisa is one of the media stations that have been on the rise to dominate the country’s television sector. Televisa is owned by Grupo Televisa and it is able to reach its clients through cable and direct-to-home satellite platforms. Salvi Rafael has been at the center of this growth and the overall change in the media environment in Mexico. After several years of heavy monitoring from the Mexican government, the company is gaining its independence through the adoption of new technologies and fighting for policy changes. Televisa has been on the forefront to embrace modern technology and has established a strong online presence setting it apart from other media companies.
