Perez, who is noted by his new employers as a beacon of knowledge, integrity and professionalism in the world of Latino music, as well as his ability to spotlight up-and-coming new acts, is recognized for his early coverage of superstars like Karol G, Feid and Sebastián Yatra, among others.
Starting in 1997 as an assistant in the international department of the Mexican media company Televisa, where he later became a label manager, Pérez brings a deep understanding of Mexico's pop, urban and regional markets to the music industry.
Pérez was also a label manager at Univision Music México, where he focused primarily on regional Mexican music and worked with acts such as Los Tigres del Norte, Ana Bárbara, Banda El Recodo, and Jenni Rivera.
After moving to the United States as a television and print coordinator, Pérez became director of national publicity following the acquisition of Univision Music by Universal Music Latin Entertainment.
In 2020, he was promoted to international vice president of public relations and promotions, overseeing parent label Machete Music and Capitol Latin, and working closely with regional Mexican labels Fonovisa and Disa.
“I will bring my experience to bear as we continue to develop our company, enhance our value proposition for artists, and position ourselves as a leader at the intersection of music and technology,” highlighted Pérez.
