Armando Nuñez, GSB ’82 and a Fordham trustee, has been ranked by the Hollywood Reporter as the seventh most powerful Latino in entertainment.
As president and CEO of CBS Global Distribution Group, Nuñez is in charge of supplying the network’s content library to customers worldwide. He also directs 13 offices around the globe and manages the company’s international channel assets.
In the magazine, CBS President and CEO Leslie Moonves called Nuñez “pound for pound, one of the best executives in town.”
Nuñez is in good company- others featured on the list include Jennifer Lopez (#3) and Oscar-winning director Alfonso Cuarón (#4). He is actually ranked higher than other, more boldfaced names like Sofía Vergara, Pitbull and Shakira.
“[I]t’s an honor to be in the company of such successful and distinguished Latinos, but more importantly, hopefully these type of listings serve as motivation and inspiration for young Latinos who want to work in media,” Nuñez said in a statement.
Nuñez has not forgotten his Ram roots; he hosted an event in Los Angeles in January honoring sportscaster Vin Scully, FCRH ’49.
“Despite our geographic location, it’s always great to see that our common bonds and passion for Fordham bring us all together,” Nuñez said at the event. “I’ve always been incredibly proud and grateful for my Fordham and Jesuit education.”
