The family recognizes the entrepreneur Jesús Dionisio González González (1913-1997) as the founder of Grupo Multimedios and Grupo Milenio. Through an interview with Jesús Dionisio in 1992, we know that his son Francisco Antonio González Sánchez has been in charge of Multimedios since (at least) the early 90s. “He is currently the head of all of this, all of Multimedios“, he stated.
There is little information about the members of the González family, their businesses, and functions. The media conglomerate Grupo Multimedios comprises: open broadcast television channels in 1 in every 3 states in the country, around forty radio stations, one national and eight local newspapers, one pay-television news chain, and one of the most visited online portals.
The third of the González, Francisco Darío González Albuerne –son of Francisco González II– is Chief Executive of Grupo Milenio and Co-Deputy Chairman of Grupo Multimedios. Francisco III was captured in 2017 getting on a government helicopter with the Senate leader, on their way to play golf with former president Enrique Peña Nieto.
His brother Jesús Dionisio González Albuerne is also Co-Deputy Chairman of the Group, as mentioned in two news releases in Multimedios, published in May and August of 2017. The first at a wake, and the second when receiving a tribute to their grandfather Jesús Dionisio “For his support of the Catholic Church and the Community of Nuevo León; The Order of Knights of Columbus.”
Multimedios participates in the design, construction and operation of housing and retail areas, advertising, and sports –it owns 50% of the baseball team Sultanes de Monterrey.
In 2017, the ex-governor of Monterrey, Jaime Rodríguez alias “El Bronco”, demanded that Club Sultanes returned the original name of the Monterrey Stadium, which the company Promociones Deportivas Jome, AC had changed to “Mobil Super” after negotiations with a sponsor.
Local media say this is not the first time that Grupo Multimedios has profited from state spaces to their commercial advantage, citing the case of the group’s carnival games business “Bosque Mágico”, exposed in 2016. The articles mention that “Bosque Mágico” occupies 13.6 hectares inside the Park La Pastora –state property– and does not pay the total costs incurred for occupying said area.
