Bilbao, 19 May 2022 – Agile Content, a company listed on BME Growth and a leading provider of digital TV and video distribution solutions, has appointed Alfredo Redondo as the company’s new CEO.

The incorporation of Alfredo Redondo reinforces the strength and excellence of the management team to continue promoting the outstanding development that the company has experienced in recent years, both organically and because of the materialization of relevant corporate operations.

In 2021 it took over the television business of Euskaltel, R and Telecable, among other operations.
In addition, this decision, in accordance with good corporate governance, comes at a good time for the company, which in 2021 had a turnover of 55 million compared to 20 million the previous year, with a considerable progression in the last quarter of the year, and with a portfolio of orders of more than €280M with contracts between 3 and 8 years
According to Hernán Scapusio, president of the company, “In the next 5 years, more than 80 million Europeans will adopt new fiber connections, in a highly atomized and fragmented European market. Our goal is that all these connections are accompanied by a television service with high technical performance, available to everyone and that enriches the audiovisual experience. With the incorporation of Alfredo, the company continues to be committed to a management team of excellence, with extensive experience in the sector and relevant success stories. In this new stage, I will continue to watch over the interests of Agile, the relationship with the markets, financing, and activities for the consolidation of the OTT market. Agile is facing a unique opportunity together with a very good competitive position”. “Alfredo Redondo’s extensive experience in the sector will allow us to continue expanding our position and our client portfolio and tackle new projects that continue to drive our growth.”
According to Alfredo Redondo, “Agile Content can be defined with three words that tell us that it is in a growing sector: content, television, and technology. Therefore, it is a pleasure to join a project with a brilliant present and with ambitious goals. I offer the company my experience, my desire to learn and my passion for leading the evolution of companies with talent as a main asset. It is a planned process, which has been carried out at a time when things are going well, and with good prospects in the short and medium term”.
The incorporation of Alfredo Redondo is immediate and until the month of September there will be a transition period in which, together with Hernán Scapusio and the entire management team, the management will be progressively assumed.
