We’re very excited to congratulate The Orchard’s own Albert Torres (VP, Latin), Priya Dewan (VP, South Korea & Southeast Asia), and Laura Tesoriero (VP, Latin) who have all been named this year’s Billboard International Power Players! Your passion and tenacity are unparalleled and the achievement is beyond deserved. Our power players set the bar to an incredible level. Each and every day they empower our distributed artists and labels, introducing music to new markets and guiding artists to new heights on a global scale, all whilst leading international teams.
