Jesus Gonzalez Named Vice President of BMI’s Latin Creative Team

Gonzalez will oversee the team helping to sign and develop new talent, assist BMI’s family of songwriters and publishers and serve as a liaison between the Latin music community and the industry at large.

“Throughout his career, Jesus has forged strong relationships within the Latin music community as a songwriter and a music executive,” said Flores. “His background gives him a deep understanding for both the artistic and business side of what we do, which is invaluable to our music creators, and his ability to forecast industry trends within the ever-growing Latin music space is second to none. I look forward to working with Jesus on developing new talent and supporting our incredible roster of Latin songwriters, producers, composers and music publishers.”

As the former senior vp brands & partnerships at Universal Music Group, Gonzalez spearheaded collaborations between top Latin artists and global Fortune 500 companies helping secure deals for artists J Balvin, Juanes and Luis Fonsi with brands such as Anheuser-Busch, Pepsi and Mastercard respectively.

Gonzalez is a voting member of the Recording Academy for the Grammy and Latin Grammy Awards. He received a bachelor’s degree in political science from the University of California, Riverside.
