    LaSuria Kandi Allman interviews Timberly Simmons in "THE HOT SEAT"

    Timberly ‘T.Diamond’ Simmons is an accomplished management professional, earning an undergraduate degree in Journalism from the University of Michigan, and a second Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Management from the University of Phoenix. Just recently, she has acquired her MBA with a concentration in Marketing.
      Timberly is CEO and founder of T.Diamond Entertainment Management Group, LLC, an independent management label headquartered in the metropolitan Detroit area. Her firm’s focus is the management of Hip-Hop and R&B artists, models/actresses and independent recording labels. She has performed management functions for the Detroit Mo’Thugs collaborative incorporated and run by the historic mainstream iconic rap group Bone Thugs-N-Harmony. Timberly has worked closely with platinum artists Pretty Ricky, Lil’ Scrappy, Avant and Detroit’s own Wale’ and K’Jon on several collaborative projects. She has recently partnered up with Videoshop Productions, Inc., run by Hip-Hop legends Popa Duck (The “REAL” Papa Doc) and Boodang, who manage such label outlets as 21-C Elite Recordings and Duck This Entertainment; not to mention the HOTTEST video show in Detroit, “The Videoshop.”

    As Business Manager and Publicist for The Videoshop, a local television show that highlight’s Detroit’s shining underground and mainstream talent, she manages functions relative to consumer satisfaction analysis, sales and service programs, accounting criteria protocol and new product offering development. She works closely with both co-owners to ensure delivery of above-bar live showcases and on-air events. In her role as Publicist, she often serves as the “official company representative” speaking on behalf of the organization, managing scenarios involving press and media, and carefully securing the “The Videoshop’s” brand and image to its external audience. When you see T.Diamond walk into your venue or event, just know that “The Videoshop” is officially in the building! Her list of company accomplishments includes landing the Robinson Furniture infomercial deal, developing a comprehensive business plan and sponsorship package, writing business contracts, and producing product description packets and media kits.

    As a research/freelance journalist, she has conducted several interviews with high-profile music industry performers and written journalistic commentary pieces for several hip-hop music industry magazines, websites and blogs. She has two authorship projects to her credit; an autobiography entitled “Broken: The evolution of ME” and a semi-fictional piece entitled “Chronicles of a Self-Made Diva.” Both journalistic pieces are set for publication and release in late 2016.

    Timberly ‘T-Diamond’ Simmons has a wealth of business, marketing, management and journalistic expertise to offer to the entertainment industry. As her brand continues to grow, look forward to seeing ‘T.Diamond’ even more in the mainstream entertainment media!
