May 9, 2024

Moonbug Entertainment, a part of Candle Media, has announced the appointment of Manuel Reveiz as the company’s new head of distribution and partnerships, Latin America. Reveiz will be responsible for building Moonbug’s presence and long-term growth in Latin American countries, connecting hit Moonbug shows like CoComelon, Blippi and Little Angel to more families in the region. He will report to Nicolas Eglau, Moonbug’s managing director of EMEA, APAC and global distribution.

In the role, Raveiz will extend Moonbug’s footprint in content syndication and channels by forging new partnerships and amplifying existing partnerships. Raveiz will be based in Miami, Florida, establishing Miami as Moonbug’s Latin America headquarters.

Raveiz joins Moonbug after nearly 15 years at Paramount, where he most recently served as vice president of  sales. During his time at Paramount, he launched Paramount+ streaming service, as well as Nickelodeon, Nick Jr., and other linear channels in Latin America. He built and expanded distribution partnerships with both digital native video services (Amazon, Apple, Mercado Libre) and existing telecommunications and multichannel video programming distributors (MVPD) like Movistar, Millicom, Liberty, and Directv. Originally from Colombia, Reveiz’s early career included roles at Movistar Colombia.

“CoComelon, Blippi, and Little Angel are some of the most beloved preschool shows in Latin America, earning millions of fans in the region.” Reveiz said. “I’m eager to expand its distribution to every potential partner.”

“Latin America is a key priority for Moonbug, and Manuel has the track record we need to chart our growth in the region,” added Eglau. “His wide network and industry expertise will help us build new partnerships and expand existing ones across all markets. We’re thrilled to establish Miami as our headquarters for the region, moving us closer to the local industry.”
