Cannes – Emilio Azcárraga Jean, Chairman of the board and CEO of Grupo Televisa, has accepted this year’s MIPCOM Personality of the Year award. Under him, Grupo Televisa has doubled its operating margin and garnered more than 70% of the Mexican Broadcast TV market.

In his keynote speech, Azcárraga Jean explained how Televisa achieved this. “We’ve made foreign co-productions a top priority… we have fine-tuned our engaging formats to local needs and tastes. The outcome is always a product that is distinctly different and yet loyal to the original.”
