Mr. Montemayor will work closely with CEO Edward Schumacher Matos and other executives in developing strategic national and local advertising, as well as helping with marketing and community involvement. "There is a surge of professional Hispanic publications in the country," Mr. Montemayor said, "and for the first time media planners are - or should be - looking beyond television and radio to provide a complimentary print campaign, if not focus on print altogether. Rumbo has a deep penetration and quality that competes with television, and in many ways surpasses it." The Rumbo network includes dailies in Houston, San Antonio, Austin and the Rio Grande Valley.
