We had the good fortune of connecting with Brandon Jay and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Brandon, is there something that you feel is most responsible for your success?
The most important factors to creating success without question involves a crazy drive, passion, determination and work ethic. Identifying your brand and understanding how others may view your brand is essential to one’s success. Continuity of a brand is also very important.

Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
IMA Entertainment Holdings is a full service management, marketing and branding corporation from managing Grammy Award Winning/multi-platinum songwriters/artists, to Emmy Nominated Actresses we value our clients and conduct business with integrity. Let’s not forget to mention we work with extremely talented individuals and our firm has even embarked on auto car racing.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Wow LA has so much to do. We would start in Beverly Hills and have lunch at Cafe Roma, walk Rodeo Drive to then eat out at Crustacean. Or how about Santa Monica doing a little shopping at 3rd St Promonade and even going to the beach at Malibu. If someone wanted to check out a great band we could head to a show and visit the Roxy on Sunset. So much to do and I have so many stories over the years.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
Wow there are so many individuals that have inspired me to become the better me. Most importantly I owe all of the credit to God. Secondly I want to thank my my mentors Governor Cedric Thompson, my COO Terry Harvey, one of the first people I met Mr. Kerry Gordy and Mr. Ernie Singleton. Last but not least I would like to thank my family, especially my daughter Audriana for teaching me the importance of family each and everyday. These individuals have a wealth of knowledge as well as greatness and I’m blessed that they shared that with me.
