Interpret Announces New Hispanic Media & Entertainment Research Practice, Names Diego Rodriguez Lead

Interpret LLC announces the hiring of Diego Rodriguez and the launch of New Media Measure Hispanic™, the Hispanic version of their New Media Measure® media consumption tracking service.

Hispanics are the fastest-growing demographic in the US today, expressing unique media adoption and consumption patterns, and are expected to increase their spending power to $1.5 trillion in the next two years. Interpret continues to grow its multicultural practice, hiring Diego Rodriguez as Head of Hispanic Media & Entertainment.

Diego

will oversee Interpret’s latest syndicated research service, New Media Measure Hispanic™ and work with clients on custom market research projects throughout Latin America to help them understand the power and potential of the Hispanic market.

New Media Measure Hispanic™ is designed to monitor the latest trends in media, technology and entertainment among Hispanics in the U.S.

Importantly, New Media Measure Hispanic™ is sensitive to the diversity inherent in the Hispanic demographic, capturing nuances among various segments, including first generation, Spanish language dominant and country of origin.

Interpret’s New Media Measure® quarterly tracker, has proven an effective planning tool for researchers and marketers to aid in understanding consumer interactions with new technologies, evolving media vehicles and detailed brand consumption trends; New Media Measure Hispanic™ will provide similarly deep insight into an increasingly important part of our community.

Grant Johnson, Interpret’s CEO, commented:

“We are thrilled to have Diego onboard, a true expert on the Hispanic market here in the US, and with significant international experience as well.

Diego is the ideal ‘interpreter’ – he’s smart, flexibly minded and determined to uncover insights that can help our clients make better decisions.

Not to be overlooked, he’s also fun and a pleasure to work with.”

Diego Rodriguez commented: “I am excited to be with a company that is committed to understanding the Hispanic market. When people say ‘Hispanics are…’ they are too often assuming one homogenous group, and that we are all the same.

I am pleased to be in charge of this new division that, among other things, will launch New Media Measure Hispanic™ and help our clients better understand unique opportunities among different segments of the Hispanic population.”
