Carmen Fernández de Alarcón, CEO of Havas and member of the Board of Directors of Grupo Prisa, has extensive experience in the sector, always linked to innovation and business transformation. The new member is incorporated at a time when the company is executing significant growth both in the evolution of its results and in its positioning in a fragmented market with consolidation options. She will replace Aloysio Junqueira, who is completing his six-year cycle. The Board thanks Aloysio for his important work, his involvement and his substantial contributions during these years of evolution and growth for the company. The appointment of Carmen Fernández de Alarcón has been approved by the Board of Directors and will be proposed for ratification by the General Shareholders’ Meeting to be held in Bilbao on June 27, 2022.


The Board of Directors of Agile Content will be made up of 10 directors, three of them women. In this way, the company continues to make progress in improving good corporate governance, reinforcing gender diversity, with a weight of women on the Board of Directors amounting to 30%.


For the President of Agile Content, Hernán Scapusio, it is essential to have good corporate governance and a reinforced board to face the challenges of the future in a sector with significant growth forecasts. “I want to thank Aloysio Junqueira for his contributions to the board and welcome Carmen Fernández de Alarcón. Her experience, trajectory and knowledge will provide a complementary vision on the board, which in the face of the reconfiguration of hybrid payment and advertising offers will mark the evolution of OTT.”


The incorporation of Carmen Fernández de Alarcón is added to the recent incorporation of other relevant people in the industry as directors and managers, such as José Antonio López (Ericsson), Nuno Carvalho (Cisco) or Alfredo Redondo (Alcatel/Lucent).
