Becomes first woman to hold the post

Three years after joining Universal Music Publishing Group, Alexandra Lioutikoff has been promoted to the post of president, Latin America and U.S. Latin. The appointment makes Lioutikoff the first woman to hold that post and, currently, the only woman to hold the position of president for a multinational Latin music company.   

She will continue to be based in Miami, reporting to UMPG Chairman and CEO Jody Gerson. “I couldn’t be prouder to promote Alexandra to President of UMPG Latin America & U.S. Latin. In the three years she’s been with our company, she’s completely transformed the region creatively and the financial results are unprecedented,” said Gerson in a statement.    

   

Lioutikoff was hired as executive VP of Latin Music for UMPG in 2016 after a long tenure as the head of ASCAP’s Latin membership department.

“Latin music is finally being recognized and celebrated globally, and I’m honored to be leading UMPG’s Latin efforts to partner with the some of the best songwriters and producers in the world,” said Lioutikoff. “I’m grateful to Jody Gerson for believing in me and for UMPG’s unwavering support of this genre."   

In her previous role at UMPG, Lioutikoff served as executive vice president of Latin Music. Under her leadership, she led the signings of Romeo Santos, Anitta, Espinoza Paz, Rvssian, Roc Nation Latin Publishing, Bruno Martini, Rich Music and Justin Quiles, Young Martino, MadMusick, Raymix, Christian Nodal and Mon Laferte, among others.

During her earlier stint with ASCAP, she expanded operations to include urban and Latin rock, helped lead a major reorganization of the Puerto Rico office and developed five Latin offices.
