MIAMI — Turner Broadcasting System Latin America has upped Juan Carlos Urdaneta to president.

He joined TBS in 1994 as regional controller for Latin America. In 1996 he was promoted to regional VP of northern Latin America sales for Turner Intl. and later to senior VP of sales and marketing in Brazil, the Caribbean, Central America and Mexico.

Urdaneta fills the post formerly held by David Levy, named co-president of TBS Intl. on Sept. 5.

“Latin America is the fastest growing region anywhere in the world for Turner Broadcasting,” said Levy. “It represents about 30% of all of our international revenue and is a major distribution hub for our networks.”
