Albert Salmerón, director of Barcelona-based Producciones Animadas, was today appointed president of Spain’s Association of Music Promoters (APM).

Salmerón (pictured), who takes over from Pascual Egea, leads a board of directors comprising Doctor Music’s Neo Sala, Tito Ramoneda of The Project, Julio Martí of Serious Fan Music and Maricruz Laguna, director of marketing at Universal Music’s GTS.

The news was announced at APM’s 17th annual general meeting in Peralada, Catalonia. Egea was not eligible for reelection, having already served eight years in the role.

With Animadas, Salmerón is involved in the Barcelona Acció Musical (BAM), Hipnotik and Utopia festivals, as well as Legal Music’s troubled SOS 4.8. He has been an APM board member for the past four years.

His presidency, he says, will be “discreet and conflict-free”.
