Dubbed the “Tropical Tycoon” by The New York Times Magazine, Nely Galán is one of the entertainment industry’s savviest firebrand talents. A first generation immigrant and self-made media mogul, Galán was the first Latina president of a U.S. television network (Telemundo). She has also owned and operated her own media company since 1994. Galán Entertainment has launched 10 groundbreaking television channels in Latin America, and has also produced a staggering 600 episodes of programming that cross all genres from reality series to sitcoms, telenovelas to talk shows, in both English and Spanish, including the FOX hit reality series “The Swan.” Galán is the founder of The Adelante Movement (Move Forward!) a grassroots movement that unites and empowers Latinas socially, economically and politically. Galán’s new book for women entrepreneurs, SELF MADE, launches this spring.
