Jesús López, Chairman and CEO, Universal Music Latin America and the Iberian Península, said: “The knowledge and experience to find and develop new artists is one of the most valuable attributes in the music business. Few people have successfully contributed to the careers of so many Latin artists as Jorge Pino has done in the past decades. To have Jorge and his team working closely with the Universal Music team in Latin America is a great strategic complement that will help us maintain our commitment to new talent. I wish Jorge and his team at In-Tu Línea much success.”
“Our business strategy is to provide a “one-stop-shop” service to our talent, with an emphasis on production, marketing, management and booking, always one step ahead of the challenges in this ever changing industry,” stated Jorge Pino, CEO of Indi-e Entertainment Group. Together with Fidel Hernandez (COO), they want to contribute to artist development in any music genre with support from Universal Music Latin Entertainment.
