Our Chairman

Gustavo Cisneros is currently the Chairman of CISNEROS, a privately held company with over 90 years’ experience operating businesses globally.  Additionally, Gustavo Cisneros is the owner of Tropicalia, a high-end, environmentally and socially responsible, tourism real-estate development located in the Dominican Republic.

As Chairman and Chief Executive Officer since 1970, Gustavo Cisneros has dedicated himself to both the strategic development of CISNEROS and the overall advancement of the region. His leadership has helped to enhance Latin America’s profile on the global stage, cultivate new industries, increase access to information, and advance technological growth. He has done so in an effort to promote education, the principles of democracy and individual liberty.

Today, the company has three divisions: Cisneros Media, Cisneros Interactive and Cisneros Real Estate.  Cisneros Media produces and distributes entertainment content across all platforms worldwide. Its over-the-air and pay TV network reach over 50 million subscribers in the US, Latin America, the Caribbean and Spain.  Cisneros Interactive is the leading independent digital advertising company in Latin America, with offices and sales teams in 15 countries in Latin America.   It represents brands such as Facebook, Spotify and LinkedIn and sells its proprietary solutions in mobile and audio with JustMob and Audio.Ad respectively.  Cisneros Real Estate is responsible for the strategic positioning of the company’s real estate portfolio, Tropicalia being the most significant undertaking of Cisneros Real Estate.  Outside of the three core divisions, AST&Science, Cisneros’ latest investment, aims at bringing worldwide connectivity through LEO satellites.

In addition, Gustavo Cisneros has been appointed a member of the Ibero-American Council for Productivity and Competitiveness; the Council for the Atlantic Institute of Government; and the Board of Trustees of the Cardinal Cisneros Foundation. He recently received honorary doctorate degrees from the University of Miami and Babson College.  In December 2014, he received the Brandon Tartikoff Legacy Award from NATPE (National Association of Television Program Executives); and in May 2012, he was honored by the Advertising Educational Foundation´s “Lifetime Achievement Award” for his contributions to the entertainment industry and the role of the Fundación Cisneros to improve education in Latin America.

With his wife Patricia Phelps de Cisneros, Gustavo Cisneros established the Fundación Cisneros, a private nonprofit institution committed to improving education in Latin America while increasing international awareness of the region's contributions in the global cultural arena. The Fundación Cisneros works together with the Corporate Social Responsibility programs of the companies of CISNEROS to fortify communities, promote freedom of speech, encourage economic development, and foster cross-cultural understanding.  In 2016, through the Patricia Phelps de Cisneros Collection (CPPC), they formalized the donation of 148 works of modern art from Latin America to the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York City. One of the largest in MoMA history, the donation cements MoMA’s global leadership in the study and presentation of Latin American art. To complement the donation, the CPPC also established The Patricia Phelps de Cisneros Research Institute for the Study of Latin American Art on the MoMA campus, which will support curatorial research and travel, hosts artists, researchers, and an annual international conference, and produces academic publications on Latin American art.

Gustavo Cisneros received a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from Babson College, in Wellesley, Massachusetts.
