Canedo White ankles Televisa

MEXICO CITY — Mexico’s powerful broadcaster Televisa said on Monday that its chief corporate officer, Guillermo Canedo White, had resigned to pursue other interests.

Canedo White’s exit follows weeks of rumors about a management reshuffle in the wake of the death of Televisa chairman and owner Emilio Azcarraga Milmo in April.

“I feel it is best for me to move on and pursue other interests,” Canedo White said in the Televisa statement.

Alejandro Burillo Azcarraga, a nephew of Azcarraga Milmo, recently muscled his way back into the company, and, sources said, had differences with Canedo White.

The statement said the company was searching for a chief financial officer and that in the interim, Raul Lopez Martinez would serve as acting chief financial officer.
