Conrad Dimanche Strengthens A&R Resources with PMP Worldwide
Conrad Dimanche may remain one of the most recognizable figures in the contemporary recording industry; however, he is the first one to admit that this success did not come without hard work. With hard work and dedication, this leading A&R professional was able to effectively combine his talent for business development with that of his passion for the music industry and its endless pool of creativity. Beginning as the owner of a barbershop, Dimanche quickly began to explore the music scene within New York City.
Eventually, Dimanche’s focus on managing talent led him to land a position as an intern at Sean “Diddy” Combs’ Bad Boy Records—one of the most influential labels in hip hop. With an undying dedication towards learning the business, Conrad Dimanche worked for many years before he became the Senior A&R Director for Bad Boy Records. Under this role, he managed the production of several platinum albums coming from noteworthy artists such as Notorious B.I.G., Danity Kane, Carl Thomas, Black Rob, Day 26, Young Joc, and Diddy himself.
Although the success of Dimanche is one that speaks for itself, he continues to push forward to prompt innovation within the recording industry. Maintaining the same values for hard work and dedication that he displayed as a young intern, Dimanche is now the co-founder and President of PMP Worldwide, a unique company that strives to revolutionize the way talent and production professionals approach the creative marketplace found within the music industry.
