Agile Content, a leading provider of digital TV and video distribution solutions, has appointed Alfredo Redondo as the company’s new CEO.
One of Redondo’s duties will be to promote the 2022-2024 Strategic Plan and consolidate the company’s business after the significant growth in recent years.
Redondo brings more than 30 years of experience in the telecommunications and television industry to Agile.
As Executive Chairman, he led Alcatel (today part of Nokia) in Iberia and Latin America, exceeding two billion euros in turnover with more than five thousand professionals, and later the integration of Alcatel and Lucent in Iberia.
As CEO of Amper (listed on the Continuous Market) he undertook an important internationalization role, and as CEO of Altitude Software he led its evolution towards the world of SaaS in Customer Relations
Redondo will be responsible for managing and accelerating the growth that Agile has experienced in recent years, with a turnover of 55 million euros in 2021 compared to 20 million euros during 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
The co-founder and until now the company’s top executive, Hernán Scapusio, will continue as President, contributing to the orientation of the strategic plan and support for execution, focusing on corporate development, facing the OTT market consolidation options.
The incorporation of Alfredo Redondo reinforces the strength of the management team to continue promoting the development that the company has experienced in recent years, both organically and as a result of the materialization of relevant corporate operations.
In 2020, Agile acquired Edgeware, the main Swedish video distributor (the first takeover bid on Nasdaq carried out by a BME Growth company). In 2021 it took over the television business of Euskaltel, R and Telecable, among other operations.
Mr Redondo said: “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”.
Mr Scapusio said: “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.”
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.
