The American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers, ASCAP, has promoted Gabriela Gonzalez to vice president, Latin.
The former senior director will now oversee the ASCAP Latin Membership Department, including staff in Los Angeles, Miami, New York and Puerto Rico responsible for developing the careers of ASCAP composers and songwriters, recruiting new members and serving all of ASCAP’s Latin writer and publisher members.
“I’m excited to take the reins of the Latin department at ASCAP,” said Gonzalez in a press release. “At a time when there is so much phenomenal Latin talent and the genre continues to expand, ASCAP plays an essential role in supporting both our new songwriters and our most successful members.”
Gonzalez has signed some of ASCAP’s top talent including Marco Antonio Solis, Gerardo Ortiz, José Alberto Inzunza and Mario Domm. She also contributed to the organization’s increased market share in the Regional Mexican sector.
“Gabriela is an incredibly dedicated leader who has made outstanding contributions to our Latin Membership since she arrived at ASCAP 17 years ago,” said Jon Titta, ASCAP evp, Membership. “Her ability to cultivate relationships in the global Latin community has been essential to our growing market share in the genre. I have no doubt that she will enable ASCAP to continue its strong position in Latin music.”
