CHAVEZ JOINS JACOBSON'S HALLWOOD

Neil Jacobson's new writer/producer management hub, Hallwood Media, has announced the hiring of creative music executive Cristina Chavez. She joins the team as SVP of A&R/Management and will focus on expanding Hallwood's repertoire deeper into the Hip-hop/R&B space. 

Chavez most recently she served as ASCAP's Membership Executive in the Urban Department, where she worked with talent/client relations, along with seeking out new talent to bring to the PRO. Prior to that, Chavez spent five years at BET, overseeing the network’s tastemaking Music Matters campaign, booking noteworthy up-and-coming artist performances and interviews with rising talent like Kendrick Lamar, H.E.R., J. Cole, Jazmine Sullivan, Big Sean and Melanie Fiona.

The announcement comes on the heels of Hallwood's first #1, BTS's "Dynamite," co-written and produced by Hallwood client David Stewart.  

"Cristina is a wonderful addition to our team and brings two important skills to Hallwood," shared Jacobson, Hallwood Media founder and CEO. "First, she’s brilliant and has great relationships across the industry that will benefit her clients and our overall roster. Second, she brings knowledge from the PRO world that is extremely specialized and will be hugely important as the publishing side of our industry undergoes a massive shift over the next 18 months."

 

"In under a year, Neil and the Hallwood team have created a service-focused management company that’s second-to-none," shared Chavez. "I’m excited to be joining the team now and look forward to building on their success."
