Nely Galán

Latina media dynamo Nely Galán—dubbed the “Tropical Tycoon” by the New York Times Magazine—is one of the entertainment industry’s savviest firebrand talents, bringing her considerable expertise to full effect as a successful media and real estate entrepreneur, a galvanizing powerbroker in the Latino world, and a Latina women’s advocate and motivational speaker. Galán recently created the Adelante National Empowerment and Entrepreneurship Tour for Latinas, partnering with the Coca-Cola Company, to help create a national movement for Latinas, which she is very passionate about.

Galán is the former president of the powerhouse Telemundo television network, making her the first Latina network president. She has also owned and operated her own media company since 1994. Galán Entertainment has launched ten 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.

Galán Entertainment was also responsible for creating and executive producing the smash FOX reality hit The Swan, and as its in-house life coach, Galán wrote the bestselling companion book, The Swan Curriculum. The Swan has aired in over 70 countries around the world, and was famously spoofed by Tina Fey on Saturday Night Live.

In addition, she has owned her own real-estate development and investment company, Santa Clara, for fifteen years, which has commercial and residential real-estate holdings in multiple states.

Recently Galán appeared on the NBC hit, The Celebrity Apprentice with Donald Trump, joining an all-star cast including Gene Simmons, Nadia Comaneci, Marilu Henner, and the infamous Omarosa. Galán’s appearance on the show, where she raised $250,000 for her charity, Count Me In, furthered her reputation as one of the nation’s top female moguls. In her role as public speaker, Galán routinely draws rave reviews for her mesmerizing presentations on the Latino market, entrepreneurship, and female empowerment.

Galán is also frequently cited for her influential work outside the industry as a board member for Count Me In (the leading national nonprofit provider for women entrepreneurs), and the Coca-Cola Company Advisory Board, and she is an emeritus member of the Smithsonian Board.

As a part of her multi-platform business, Galán has recently launched two web sites targeting women:, a forum for female entrepreneurs aimed at providing support and sharing resources; and, dedicated to the health, wellness, and beauty issues of women. She has appeared as a guest expert on The Today Show and The Big Idea With Donny Deutsch.

Galán, the original ”Ms. Mogul,” is also a devoted mom to her 11- year-old son and is based in Venice, California. She recently went back to school, where she is completing her masters/ doctorate in Clinical and Cultural Psychology.
