CEO

Low profile and ever efficient, González merged film distributor DeAPlaneta’s Antena 3 with La Sexta in 2012, forming Atresmedia Group, one of Spain’s biggest media congloms, to target family audiences. He leveraged hit series such as “Grand Hotel” and “Velvet” to drive up pay-TV subscribers abroad with the production quality of film. Facing a declining European ad market, González is priming content creation and pay TV opportunities. Since 2017, Atresmedia Studios has been creating for third parties including Movistar Plus (“The Pier”) and Amazon (Spanish original “La Templanza”). With OTT Atresplayer Premium, it’s offering original TV such as new series “El Nudo” and “Veneno.” Titles by film-production arm Atresmedia Cine snagged a solid 22 percent of local box office in the first half of 2019.
