Jesus Gonzalez has been named vice president of BMI's Latin creative team, Billboard can confirm.
Based out of BMI’s Los Angeles office, Gonzalez will report to BMI senior vp creative Alex Flores and will join the company beginning March 8. He takes the spot left by Delia Orjuela, the longtime vp Latin creative for BMI who resigned in Sept. 2019.
“As a songwriter myself, I know how important BMI is to those who create music,” Gonzalez said in a statement. “I’ve come full circle with BMI, beginning with my first showcase on their SXSW stage in 2005, and now I’m on the other side of the table supporting my fellow songwriters. I’m extremely excited to join the team’s efforts in serving the Latin music community by helping to create and expand on the wonderful opportunities that BMI provides for its affiliates.”
