Kobalt has promoted Jeannette Perez to chief experience officer, the company announced Monday (Nov. 25). In this newly created role, she will continue to oversee global synch and brand partnerships, as well as establish a writer and publisher relations team. She will also oversee the global TV & film publishing business, and the Kobalt Australia and Sweden offices. 

Perez previously served as president of global synch & brand partnerships. She joined Kobalt in 2014, and has since grown the Kobalt synch business by 163 percent. 

"The music industry needs more leaders like Jeannette," said founder and CEO of Kobalt Willard Ahdritz. "She has always ensured that we deliver the highest quality creative services and opportunities to our partners and her dedication to our songwriters and artists perfectly aligns with the values of Kobalt. Combined with her positive attitude and how she manages her teams, I am very proud to have an amazing leader like Jeannette on our team.”

“As the music landscape continues to evolve so does our global client services and execution," added Perez. "Kobalt’s one-roster, one territory approach already differentiates us from any other publisher. With this approach, we collaborate across the world without encroaching on territories or local P&L’s. We are all on the same team: the client’s. This approach combined with my role and hyper-focus on our client service experience, will further set Kobalt apart in the industry as the best home for artists, songwriters, publishers, labels, copyright holders and more. Specifically, we see big client benefits by reshaping the admin department to get even closer to our frontline services, such as A&R and synch. I have no doubt we will connect clients to more impactful opportunities from all corners of the world. That’s my objective and I’m excited by it.”

Perez was awarded the titles of Billboard International Power Player in 2019, Billboard Branding Power Player in 2018 and 2019, Billboard Indie Power Player in 2017 and Billboard 40 under 40 in 2015.
