Tomas Cookman is the founder and CEO of Industria Works, a multi-platform company that specializes in expanding the reach of Latin music and culture on a global level. Named a “Billboard Latin Power Player,” the Nuyorican-born, Los Angeles-based entrepreneur first established himself as an artist manager, guiding the careers of many notable artists to international success. Cookman founded Nacional Records–one of the world’s leading Latin independent labels (with more than 80 Latin Grammy and Grammy wins and nominations). Nacional’s one-stop synch department includes clients such as Dodge, Verizon, McDonalds, Target, Kia, T-Mobile, and many film, TV, and video game placements. Cookman established the Latin Alternative Music Conference (LAMC), the largest Latin music conference in the U.S.A. Geared toward the marketing of cutting-edge, Latin music and culture, it is now in its 18th year. Cookman also founded Supersonico, a multi-stage, multi-artist music and arts festival in Los Angeles, and has created weekly shows on MTV tr3s and SiriusXM.
