ShowHeroes Group Reorganizes in the LATAM Region, Appointing A New Leadership Team
7 March 2023
London, 7 March 2023 – ShowHeroes Group, a global leader in digital video that offers content, tech, and advertising solutions, is continuing its global expansion and international growth with a restructuring of its LATAM operations.
Following the company’s successful acquisition of smartclip LATAM in February 2022, a leading force in both the CTV and OTT Latin market, ShowHeroes Group is capitalizing on the region’s potential by restructuring its LATAM team and announcing new executive positions.
ShowHeroes Group is transitioning from having a centralized team for the LATAM region to having separate teams for Spanish-speaking LATAM countries and Brazil. Leading the helm of the Brazilian market is Country Manager Lilian Prado and André Zimmermann, President ShowHeroes Brazil. Prado and Zimmermann will take over management of the Brazilian market from Ángel Pascual, who until this month, spearheaded the company’s regional operations after the acquisition of smartclip LATAM. Raquel Baranda ascends as the newly appointed Regional Director Hispanic LATAM as of April.
“The Brazilian market has been a phenomenal source of growth for us since our acquisition of smartclip LATAM, and with our new restructuring, that growth will be supercharged,” says Lilian Prado. “We’re particularly focusing on the huge potential for CTV advertising in the country – the number of subscription OTT video viewers is set to rise from our current 72.6 million to 89.1 million by 2026.”
“I’m delighted to be leading operations for the Spanish-speaking LATAM market,” says Raquel Baranda.
With the new organization, ShowHeroes Group will continue its Better Media pledge throughout the LATAM region, providing solutions to uphold its four main areas: sustainable advertising, reducing its carbon footprint, privacy-protecting advertising, and diversity, equity, and inclusion.
“In LATAM, as with our other markets, we’re balancing profit with responsibility for people and the planet,” says Ilhan Zengin, CEO of ShowHeroes Group
