Sony/ATV Promotes Jorge Mejia To President, Latin America And U.S. Latin

New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Sony/ATV Music Publishing has promoted Jorge Mejia to the position of President, Latin America and U.S. Latin, based in the company's Miami office.

In the role, Mejia is responsible for the entire operations of the world's leading music publishing company across the U.S. Latin market and the Latin American region, including overseeing offices in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico and Miami. He reports into Sony/ATV Co-President, U.S., Danny Strick.

Sony/ATV Chairman and CEO Martin Bandier said: "Jorge and I share the same vision for growth in the Latin market where he has proven himself to be a leader in every territory both from a creative standpoint and in implementing programs to meet the challenges in the digital world. This is a well-deserved promotion, and I am very proud of Jorge."

Danny Strick said: "I have had the pleasure of working with Jorge at Sony/ATV for over a decade and have enjoyed experiencing his growth as an executive. He combines the strong attributes of musical taste, drive and business savvy in a way that has strongly contributed to the success and growth of our Latin division."

Jorge Mejia said: "I am grateful to Marty and Danny for this opportunity to continue leading the Latin effort within Sony/ATV. Latin music is everywhere nowadays. You'll hear it in the most unexpected beats, in the most unexpected places. It truly has become part of the soundtrack to a whole new generation. What a fantastic responsibility and privilege to be a part of this soundtrack, while continuing to contribute to the success of our great company."

Colombian-born Jorge Mejia, who has lived in Miami since the age of 12, has risen to the ranks of President of Sony/ATV's Latin America and U.S. Latin business nearly 20 years after starting as an intern. He joined the company having attended the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston and then the University of Miami where he received a degree in Piano Performance.

Under him Sony/ATV has firmly established itself as the No. 1 music publisher in the region with a local roster that includes Ricardo Arjona, Don Omar, Nicky Jam, Wisin, Yandel, Ricky Martin and Mario Domm, among many others. It was crowned last year as Billboard Latin Publishing Corporation of the Year as well as being named ASCAP Latin Publisher of the Year for an unprecedented 13th consecutive time. In March this year it was additionally recognized as BMI Latin Publisher of the Year.

Mejia himself was last year selected by Billboard as one of its Latin Power Players, the only music publisher to make the list, while he serves on the board of the Latin Songwriters Hall of Fame.

Alongside his role at Sony/ATV, he continues to pursue a career as a musician and recording artist and in June last year released Preludes, an album containing 25 preludes for solo piano composed, scored and performed by him. It was launched with a concert at the Art House recording studio in Miami in front of an audience including industry media, label executives, musicians, producers and the heads of all the Latin music publishing companies.
