He starts April first in the newly created position of Director of the EFE bureau in Mexico.
“I leave Miami with mixed emotions. It is an honor to assume the responsibility to manage one of the most important news bureaus in a very delicate historical moment for Mexico,” Sánchez tells Media Moves. “I am extremely grateful to EFE for the trust it has placed in me.”
Sánchez says the plan is to “reinforce Mexico coverage and increase services geared to the United States and the rest of the region.”
Manuel Ortega, who until now was the Deputy Director of the Commercial Department in Spain, will take over Sánchez’s role, based out of the EFE office in Washington, D.C.
