Andres Rivera is a seasoned producer and media industry creative with nearly 15 years of experience in Latinx streaming & cross-platform content development. Most recently appointed Supervising Producer at NBCUniversal Telemundo, he served as the second-in-command on a pioneering, English-language production designed for mobile devices called #ForTheCultura, which the company licensed to Quibi in 2019 and launched on-time during the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020.
One of the first hires to Telemundo's productions for Quibi, Andres was a key decision-maker in the recruitment, structure and piloting of Quibi's formats. Andres oversaw day-to-day editorial and implemented the show's technical production workflows from pre- to post-production, including overnight "turnstyle" edits designed for mobile, and promotional distribution strategy across YouTube, Instagram; Twitter. Andres brought his past relationships in entertainment news to the show's bookings and ultimately led #ForTheCultura, at its peak, to track among the top 5 daily essentials on Quibi, before the platform ultimately sunsetted its operations in 4Q20.
Prior to this role, Andres oversaw digital productions at Univision Communications. During his tenure, the team successfully ideated and delivered several original entertainment/news productions, along with Hispanic creative partnerships campaigns for the likes of Rolls Royce, The Walt Disney Company, Dish Latino, Universal Music & Toyota. Andres joined Univision in 2016 after graduating from college and launching YoungWildPanda Productions, specializing in multimedia commercials, music videos, short films & documentaries. An ambicultural, bilingual "200%er" who lives and breathes the boom Latin influence is having on a new American mainstream, Andres' calling is to connect US-born Millennials & Generation Z-ers to their roots through narrative-shifting storytelling for new platforms.
Andres' craft has featured in the likes of VICE, HuffPo & Billboard and earned him an EPPY Award, a North American Digital Media Award & two Emmy nominations. He holds a Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration and Marketing from Florida International University.
