I am working with the fastest growing sports/entertainment company in the world. They company is growing rapidly in size and influence and the sport has an passionate fan base that is also expanding rapidly.
This growth is particularly strong among the Latin American countries. There are actually 20 different Spanish speaking countries. Their events are now on Televisa Networks and this new position will have tremendous impact just as the sport itself is now going to be a huge force in Latin American entertainment.
The ideal person will be based in the US (a Visa will be applied for as soon as possible) and will work with PR agencies throughout Latin America on strategic programs that align with the company's marketing objectives in the region. This will include promotion of the events, programming, celebrities, the sport itself and the companies other assets.
We are looking for someone with at least 8 years of experience handling public relations throughout Latin America. This person should have a well developed book of contacts throughout the region. Although direct contact with the press will be part of the role, the focus will be on developing a strong PR network throughout Latin America and making sure that this network understands how to deliver on the overall strategy that is set for the company.
This is a very exciting opportunity for a native Spanish speaking PR leader, who also speaks English fluently and is willing to work in the western US. Working at or with Public Relations agencies would be very helpful experience for this role.
