The Associated Press has named Brian Hopman to the new position of general manager of Latin American and Spanish Media Markets.
Hopman was formerly the AP’s regional director for broadcast markets in Latin America and the southeastern U.S. since 2008.
Sue Cross, the AP’s senior vp for business development and partner relations in the Americas, explains why the company is choosing to focus on this particular area of the globe:
Latin America is a dynamic, growing media market with rapid development in mobile and other digital media. Brian’s experience in the region with technology and editorial products will help AP accelerate business, product and service development across all formats.
