When Emilio Azcarraga Jean took over the reins of Mexico-based Grupo Televisa, the world’s largest Spanish-language media conglomerate, in 1997, investors raised doubts as to whether the then 29-year-old scion would be able to carry on the daunting task of turning around the media conglomerate. At that time, the company's revenues were stagnant, it was characterised by a bloated management structure and intense competition. However, Jean proved his critics wrong. By focussing on lowering costs, improving production and changing the work culture, Jean, in a span of six years returned the company to profitability with revenues of $2.3 billion and profits to the tune of $350.
