Porfirio Sanchez Galindo is one of the top-rated CEOs in the media world. Being a CEO is a leading media company, he is undoubtedly one of the most envied professionals in his industry. Currently, he is the CEO of the Televisa Editorial Group. If there is one thing that Televisa is known for, it is for being the leading media company in the Spanish speaking world and beyond. Their media presence extends to the USA and they have over 20 pay media brands in more than 50 countries. Therefore, being in the executive team of this company is such a huge deal.
Sanchez Galindo got the CEO job a few years. However, he had been working for the company since he graduated from the university. His skills and abilities got him to be promoted to the low level management, but he could never really exploit his full potential there. Therefore, when he received an offer to work for World Bank, where he would have more responsibilities and better working terms, he did not hesitate to take up the offer. But, this incidence was also a wakeup call to Grupo Televisa- that they could potentially lose one of their best men. Therefore, Grupo Televisa boss talked to Sanchez and offered him an even better deal and that way they got to retain him. Consequently, he was posted to the editorial branch, where he instantly became its head.
His numerous skills enable him to effectively manage the over 10,000 people who are under his realm. Managing such a large number of people would not have been possible if he did not have such a solid education background and career experience. Also, it would have been a flop if he did not have leadership traits.
However, Sanchez within the short time he has been in leadership has managed to bring in more than $10 billion in profits. This is such a huge success for both Grupo Televisa and Galindo. It is hoped that the editorial group will even be better now that they have Galindo to make all the major decisions.
