Brazil, with more than 192 million inhabitants spread over an area of 8.5 million square kilometers, is the world’s fifth-largest nation and South America’s most populous country. Bertelsmann had already had a footprint in South America for quite some time prior to opening its own Corporate Center there in June of 2012.
FremantleMedia has marketed hit shows here including Idol and The Apprentice. The Random House book publishing arm has operations in Argentina, Mexico and Brazil, and Gruner + Jahr is represented with G y J Televisia in Mexico. Arvato has distribution services, service centers and print activities in South America. Altogether, Bertelsmann has about 3,000 employees in South America. The goal is to build on this in the future, as Thomas Rabe declared at the official opening of the São Paulo Corporate Center.
"It is important to be represented with a central anchor. The new Corporate Center will help us further develop our existing activities in this region and to build up new businesses – for example in the areas of education and digital media."
