Cora Creed is the vice president of digital operations for Sony Music Entertainment. She splits her time between New York and Salzburg, Austria, working on strategic operational initiatives in the digital arena.
Sony Music is the second-largest global recorded music company of the “big four” record companies, featuring such artists as Bruce Springsteen, Michael Jackson and Carrie Underwood.
A native of Listowel, Co. Kerry, Creed moved to the U.S. in 1991, right after getting married. She received a Donnelly green card and intended to stay for no longer than a year.
Creed taught computer classes at the Aisling Irish Center in Yonkers 10 years go. She played and was a committee member of the Bronx Irish Soccer league for a few years, and also played and was a committee member for the Ladies Darts League. She is one of the founding members of Swazi Legacy, Inc., a not-for-profit organization created last year to continue the life-long work of Father Pat Ahern (late of Ballylongford, Co. Kerry), by raising monies to help educate children orphaned due to the AIDS epidemic in Swaziland.
“Despite being one of the smallest nations on earth, we have left an indelible mark on the world. Irish music, dance, literature, sport, and other aspects of the culture have propagated to the four corners of the world,” Creed says.
“Being Irish gives you a huge sense of pride and a great deal of response for those that went before in times that were difficult for varying reasons, and yet helped make Ireland that admired country and race that it is around the world. It is with
great pride that I say I am Irish!”
