Sandoval To Manage New & Press Business Development For agefotostock

Posted on 5/25/2018 by Jim Pickerell | Printable Version | Comments (0)

agefotostock has appointed Yolanda Sandoval as Business Development Manager for the News & Press area of the company following the launch of their new website that simplifies their business into three primary business areas, Press, Creative and Economic imagery. Economic imagery was formerly referred to as Creative Stock photography. Sandoval will work out of the Madrid office.

Yolanda holds a degree in Documentation issued by the University of Alcala de Henares, as well as a diploma in Bibliotheconomy issued by the University of Carlos III. Having dedicated the main part of her career to working in press agencies in Madrid she is used to the stringent work regime required of a multitasking sales person.

Alfonso Gutierrez, CEO of agefotostock said about Yolanda Sandoval, “We have been trying for some time to find a dedicated and hard-working professional with a profound knowledge of the press-news market in Spain. Having just started this new area in our company, we are determined to carve out a portion of this market, and although we know that the press market in Spain is already established by existing competitors, we believe we have a space considering our global offer and resolute technology support. I think Yolanda will do well with us.”

When asked how she feels coming from the most prominent photo agency in the world to working in a more modest company, Yolanda replied: “This could be a new challenge for me after working for so many years in a massive organization, but I’ve worked in smaller press agencies in Madrid before, so I would say I can adapt to sizes, commitments, and needs. Perhaps the difference is that in a smaller privately-owned organization you can establish better personal relationships, and take away all the corporate hierarchy will lead to faster and more agile decision-making. I´m very enthusiastic about the possibilities, and I´m looking forward to the professional challenges this new opportunity will entail.”

A huge fan of the cinema and books, she likes to keep up to date with Spanish and international celebrities, as well as general and popular culture, closely following the calendar of events related to them. With 20 years of experience in this industry, 10 of them working in Getty Images’ Spanish office, she offers a curriculum vitae that would support agefotostock in finding a space in the highly competitive Press & News market in Spain. We wish Yolanda all the luck and joy on her new perspective.
