Mr. Thayer honed his promotional skills by then working with KROQ radio in Los Angeles- the number one modern rock music radio station in the nation.  There, he leveraged promotions and coordinated events.  KROQ was the launching pad for many MTV celebrities such as, Carson Daly, Jimmy Kimmel, and Kennedy.  With the advice and recommendations of KROQ executives, He then assumed a senior position as Director of Special Events for 103.5 The Edge in Las Vegas, at the time, the highest rated modern rock radio station in the market.  He negotiated all contracts with artists and venues in Las Vegas for radio station events and acquired sponsorships with major beverage brands and nightclubs.  Mr. Thayer managed all nightlife promotions for the station and facilitated events at a minimum of five nightclubs on rotation weekly.  He also coordinated concepts such as the Jingle Bell Rock, Get-A-Life and produced pre and post concert parties for headline concerts in Las Vegas.

Thayer later took a position with CBS/Infinity promotions in Los Angeles, where he was responsible for creating and executing major market promotions for CBS/Infinity.  He oversaw the area of Non-Traditional Revenue generation where he created events and secured multi-million dollar sponsorships.  Many of the successful programs were rolled out nationwide to the CBS/Infinity Group and his roster of clients has included Hard Rock Group, Stations Casinos, AT&T Wireless and Lincoln-Mercury.  He was highly successful leveraging brand sponsorships.

In September 2004 Thayer helped to facilitate the transition of the Aladdin Resort & Casino to new owners Planet Hollywood.  At that time he determined that with his substantial knowledge in entertainment, marketing and casino events it was time to offer his services to more than one client.

Thomas Kinmartin
Biography

imgThomas Kinmartin was born and raised in Fullerton, CA and is the youngest of four siblings. He attended Servite High School, an all boys Catholic high school in Anaheim, CA. After attending junior college to earn his associate degree he went onto Loyola Marymount University and graduated with a bachelors degree in business marketing. During his time in high school and college Thomas was able to foster and grow his real-world experience of customer service by working in both the hospitality and shipping industries. This has greatly contributed to his very high-touch approach he now applies to TEI’s client base.

His career in the entertainment industry began in 2008 as a show runner for TEI at both Brea Summerfest and the Taste of Newport in Newport Beach, CA. In those years Thomas was able to learn firsthand the many aspects involved with live production and what it takes to put together a truly memorable event. Much of that had to do with the showmanship John McEntee, Founder and President of TEI Entertainment, instilled into Thomas’s experience. Two years later Thomas began working full-time on the booking side of the business and has since been co-producing shows with Mr. McEntee. His present duties involve contract negotiation for national talent buying, management of corporate accounts, and production advancement of all events. A few notable headline acts Thomas has co-produced shows for include Jay Leno, Keith Urban, Kelly Clarkson, Snoop Dogg, Stevie Nicks, and Train, to name a few. During his time thus far Thomas has been able to form and develop many relationships through the talent agencies and managers he corresponds with on a regular basis.

Aside from national talent buying for events Thomas has been working very closely with John McEntee on the production and development of Jeff Tracta, a celebrity impersonator John discovered 4 years ago. Aside from day to day duties Thomas has enjoyed traveling around the country working many events on behalf of the company.
