Carrillo has been working at SBS for ten years and he has held various managerial positions including: General Sales Manager, Local Sales Manager and Senior Account Executive. "He knows radio, he knows the advertisers, he knows the company and its people and he's intimately familiar with our West Coast stations. No one is more qualified to take over the reins of SBS Los Angeles," said Albert Rodriguez COO of SBS in a press statement.
SBS operates 17 radio stations in the major U.S. Hispanic markets, including New York, Los Angeles, Miami, Chicago, San Francisco and Puerto Rico. Last month the company announced their newest radio station, Ritmo 95.7 FM (based in Miami, FL), the first Cubaton station in the country.
Carrillo will be based out of SBS' Los Angeles offices.
