President, Tommy Boy Entertainment

Prior to being named President of Tommy Boy, Lopez spent six years as Head of Marketing and International, and spent two years as its Vice President. It was during these years that she developed and led marketing campaigns for all releases, including Atlanta rapper Gucci Mane. She also collaborated with Showtime, taking "The L Word" and "Queer As Folk" soundtracks from cult to mainstream status. Lopez soon became deeply involved in A&R, and in 2005 signed international DJ Bob Sinclar. Considered by many to be the first EDM DJ to secure superstar status in America, his album Western Dream contained two extremely successful singles; "Love Generation" and "World Hold On". Rosie's other signings have produced more than thirty #1 singles on the Billboard Club Chart, resulting in that publication naming Tommy Boy #1 Dance Label for five years in a row! In 2011 she executive produced Tommy Boy's sold-out 30th Anniversary Concert at the Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland. This included a narrative scripted by the label's founder Tom Silverman, and featured performances from Afrika Bambaataa, House of Pain, Naughty By Nature, Coolio, Digital Underground, and Prince Paul. Early in her career, Rosie held GM positions at Louie Vega and Kenny Dopes MAW Records, Big Life Records, and international DJ company DMC and MixMag. In addition to being a board member for Cyndi Lauper's True Colors Foundation, she is a sought-after guest speaker and panelist at music conferences; including New Music Seminar, Amsterdam Dance Event, Winter Music Conference, and the Billboard Film & TV Music Conference."
