Universal Music Publishing Group (UMPG) has promoted Olga Cardona to VP, administration and marketing, Latin Music.
Miami-based Cardona (pictured) joined UMPG in 2007 through the acquisition of BMG Music Publishing and has been responsible for the company’s Latin catalogues, including through both the BMG and Univision Publishing mergers.
In her expanded role, Cardona will oversee administration and marketing in Latin America and be responsible for driving increased exposure of UMPG’s Latin songwriter roster on social channels. She will also work closely with the company’s Global Administration team in Nashville, as well as with UMPG’s North American and European Marketing teams.
“Olga’s passion for administration is invaluable,” said Alexandra Lioutikoff, UMPG president for Latin America and US Latin.
“I’ve known her for a long time and her vast experience and outstanding dedication make her an integral asset to our team. I couldn’t be prouder of her achievements and look forward to her continued success.”
