Global Eyes Entertainment is an international artist development consultation group that was founded in 1997 by Music Row executive, Ramona E. Simmons. Simmons was the Director of International Artist Development at Arista/Nashville, one of the most successful country music labels in history owned by Clive Davis. Simmons was responsible for the label's global growth, working with entertainment conglomerate BMG. At her 10-year-anniversary with Arista, she shared with label head and mentor, Tim DuBois, the desire to start her own company. DuBois fully supported Simmons' career advancement with the backing of the label and its roster that included Alan Jackson, Brooks and Dunn, Pam Tillis, BR549, and more. Simmons' three decades in the entertainment industry include positions in business management at Gelfand, Rennert and Feldman, artist management for The Oak Ridge Boys, film and video production with Film House, and other label experience.
Preston Sullivan, a music industry veteran, internet entrepreneur, and co-founder of tappedinto.com, joined his wife as managing partner in 2008 after working jointly on a PBS/HDNet television concert event, The Outlaw Trail (Joe Ely, Lee Roy Parnell, Jessie Colter, Del Castillo, and more), in Austin, Texas. Sullivan, a producer, publisher, and manager, has been very active in the global market since 1984. He was the Senior VP of rock label, Carlyle Records, and former studio manager for Sixteenth Avenue South Studios. Together, Simmons and Sullivan share decades of genre-crossing music experience and knowledge.
