Felipe Aquilino has joined FC Diez Media as its new head of media, and will be responsible for the sales of media rights to the Copa Libertadores and Copa Sudamericana around the world.
Aquilino will also be broadcasters’ primary point of contact at Diez Media, which is a joint venture between the IMG agency and the DAZN group.
He is leaving media group Turner after almost eight years. He most recently served as the company’s most senior sports rights executive in Brazil, leading sports broadcaster Esporte Interativo’s aggressive push into Brazilian club football rights in 2016 and 2017.
He is the second high-profile sports rights executive to leave Turner in the past few months. Leo Cesar, formerly the co-head of sports at Turner Latin America, joined Facebook in August.
