Dan Otero

Dan Otero founded Globe Star Media n Entertainment in 2002. As a former television station and recording industry executive, Dan saw the recording industry was falling short in effectively placing multicultural advertising. "I realized that the person placing the media for Tony Bennett was also placing the media for urban artists like P Diddy and Hispanic artists like Mana. In addition, we also identified that all of the major labels were using one vender for their television advertising," Dan explains. Dan used this information to form a relationship with corporate media buying company Newmark Communications in Los Angeles, California. He found that not only could he find more effective placements for multicultural media, but that he could do it at significantly lower prices. When Dan wanted to grow the his services he recruited a group of talented television, radio, and marketing executives that now form Globe Star Media n Entertainment.
