Accedo Opens Mexico Office to Support Growth in the Americas

Stockholm and Guadalajara, 10th January 2015 –
Accedo, the global market leader in TV application solutions, has opened a new office in Guadalajara, in the heart of Mexico to support Accedo’s rapidly increasing business in North and South America. The Mexico office is expected to grow rapidly with increasing demand from media companies, VOD providers, telecom operators and pay TV service providers in the region. Existing clients across the Americas include iHeartMedia, Warner Bros, Showtime, America Móvil, ESPN, FOX and Telefónica.

“I’m truly excited about the new Mexicó office for many reasons.” commented Michael Lantz, CEO, Accedo. “We see continued growth prospects for the region, and this new office will be a strong collaboration between our regional teams in North and South America.”

“The TV industry is undergoing rapid change driven by the growth in multiscreen streaming video across the globe, and across the Americas” commented Mark Adams, VP North America, Accedo. “Mexico is in an ideal position to serve both North and South America, with a good supply of local talent to lead that development.”

“The Latin America market closed 2014 with 64 m Pay TV Subs and impressive OTT business growth of more than 200% Y/Y.” commented Jerónimo Macanás, VP Southern Europe and Latin America, Accedo. “With a solid and growing Tier 1 customer base across the region we see this office, together with our already established Latin American office in Santiago (Chile), as a vital resource to meet customer requirements in the region.”
