Vasile

CEO

The Spain-based Italian merged Mediaset España, which he’s headed for 20 years, with Italy’s Mediaset in June to create pan-European entertainment giant MediaForEurope. Mediaset España is Spain’s top-rated broadcaster, betting on live, in-house event programming such as “Survivor,” as well as the region’s beloved soccer. Its seven channels scored a 28.4 percent audience share in 2018-19, dominating for nine seasons in a row. With new content production-distribution center Mediterraneo, Vasile aims to tap into the huge demand for series in the Spanish-speaking world. He just launched OTT Mitele Plus, a pay-TV service offering key soccer rights. The company’s movie arm, Telecinco Cinema released four titles in 2018, led by “Superlópez” — now available on Netflix — nabbing 31 percent of Spanish films’ total box office.
