Eduardo Zulueta, president of AMCNI, has added general director role for Spain and Portugal to his duties.

C21’s Spanish-language sister website Cveintiuno has reported AMCNI is planning to hire an executive to occupy Balsera’s position in the coming months.

Balsera had been in the role since 2018 having joined the company in 2015.

In Spain and Portugal, AMCNI reaches more than 10.5 million households through almost 30 linear pay TV channels and SVoD platforms such as El gourmet, Planet Horror, Historia y Actualidad, Acorn TV and AMC+ in Spain, in addition to Panda+ in Portugal.

At the end of 2022, New York-based AMC Networks began a strategic review that included about 200 layoffs, mainly from its New York and Miami offices.

As part of this restructure, the CEO of AMCNI Latin America, Ricardo Debén, left the company and his duties were assumed by the chief financial officer, John Huff. In February last year, AMC Networks named Kristin Dolan as CEO.
