Jorge PinoVP of Music Venemusic
Jorge Pino rose through the ranks in the majors to become CEO of EMI Music U.S. Latin. But when he left the company in 2005, he went to Venemusic, the indie label owned by Venezuelan media giant Venevision. Although distributed by Universal, Venemusic operates like a lean indie where every penny counts, but creative deals--many involving Venevision's TV operation--are possible and quickly executed. From his Miami base, Pino travels throughout the Caribbean and Latin America, personally scoping out potential deals.
