Roberto Irineu Marinho

Grupo Globo


Co-Owner / Chairman

When Marinho’s grandfather passed away after publishing the first issue of the paper he founded in 1925 in Brazil, father Roberto took over and grew the company into the giant media conglomerate it is today, with interests in broadcast television, radio, newspapers, film and publishing. After Roberto Marinho died in 2003, sons Roberto Irineu, Joao Roberto and Jose Roberto stoked the family business. Roberto Irineu, the eldest, presides as chairman of Grupo Globo, which includes broadcaster Rede Globo, newspaper publisher Infoglobo and pay-TV provider Globosat, which all dominate their sectors. To keep pace with shifting viewing habits, Globo TV has diversified its production, invested in cutting-edge technology and launched VOD service Globo Play.
