Cisneros is a privately held company with almost 100 years’ experience operating businesses globally. Today, the company has three divisions: Cisneros Media produces and distributes entertainment content across all platforms worldwide; Cisneros Interactive is the leading independent digital advertising company in Latin America; and Cisneros Real Estate is responsible for the strategic positioning of the company’s real estate portfolio.
The Fundación Cisneros, co-founded by Gustavo with his wife, Patty, promotes a wide range of community development, educational, and cultural programs focused on democracy and critical thinking.
The Cisneros family has a long history of embracing the transfer of leadership. In 1970, 25-year-old Gustavo assumed responsibilities for the group from his father, Diego, and led the group into a decades-long era of growth and international expansion. Similarly, in 2013, 33-year-old Adriana stepped into the CEO role. She credits the businesses her father and grandfather set up with shaping the bold thinking and strategies she and her team work on today.
