In the elevated position, Carballal will lead the management team across all areas of Cuarzo’s business while also managing the Spanish company’s entire output catalog.
Carballal is an award-winning producer and has worked for numerous channels and producers in Spain. He joined Cuarzo in July 2012 and previously served as director of content since 2015.
From 2006 to 2010, Carballal served as director of the breakfast news show Las Mananas de Cuatro with Concha García Campoy, and in 2011 he served as the director of Supernanny and Conexión Samanta.

“This is a clear indication of our commitment to continue to grow our business in Spain,” said Banijay Group CEO Marco Bassetti in a statement. “Juan Ramón is extremely talented and his new remit will mean that Cuarzo can further develop and deliver programming across multiple genres to our clients in Spain.”
“As well as working with our broadcast clients, we have so much opportunity to create and produce programming with wide appeal, through our collaboration with our Banijay Group creative partners,” added Carballal.
