Bargueiras’ well-earned promotion to his current position proved to be a win for both the company and its Latin audience. Under his expanded role, Discovery Networks Latin America/U.S. Hispanic already has outpaced ad sales market projections in Brazil, Mexico, Colombia and the Southern Cone. He also helped broker a mutually beneficial deal with one of the world’s largest digital publishers, Batanga Media. While he believes the cable industry has made strides both in the U.S. and globally when it comes to diversity, Bargueiras says there is always room for improvement. He says “Grey’s Anatomy” and “on a more humoristic side,” “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” are shows that best embrace diversity.
