America CV Network is excited to welcome Nelson Montes as their new Senior Director of Promotions and Creative Services. Additionally, America CV Network is proud to announce two major promotions in the sales department. Isidro Gonzalez has been named Local Sales Manager for TEVEO (the network’s new television station in South Florida) and Gina Garcia has been named Infomercial Sales Manager.
Gina Garcia, a Peruvian-American and a former account executive with America CV Network has been promoted to Infomercial Sales Manager.

She continued at Radio La Poderosa 670am as Director of Sales and Promotions. In 2004, she was hired by America CV Network as Senior Account Executive and Director of Promotional Sales and Events for America TeVe Miami. Last year was a great one for Gina as she was named America TeVe’s Account Executive of the Year and one of her successful creatives campaigns for a direct client resulted in an Suncoast Emmy nomination. “Gina is a very industrious and creative person and she is very passionate about her work. Last year, after having experienced a cancellation of an order that was worth millions of dollars, she was able to recoup that same amount by bringing in new business. She was also the creator of our live infomercials and our sales representative of the year,” said Herb Espino, Senior Vice President of Sales.
