Professional Profile- Al Lindstrom
Driven. Innovative. Visionary. These words only begin to describe the indelible force that is Al Lindstrom. A consummate professional with over 12 years of experience in radio and promotions, Al’s devotion to his work, coupled with his innate ability to anticipate and respond to his client’s needs, make him an invaluable asset to everyone he works with.
Al’s passion for his work comes as no surprise to those around him. His instinctive eye for business and ear for music actually started at a young age when he served as a Radio/Street Promotion Representative for EMI/ERG Records. After getting his feet wet handing East Coast college radio and street promotions at EMI, Al hit the ground running becoming the Director of Rap Promotion at Pallas Records, Director of Mix-Show Promotion at TVT Records and Manager of National Rap Promotion at Jive Records in just seven years. Al also brought his myriad of talents to Tommy Boy Records as National Director of Mix-Show Promotion and Marketing, The RPM Group where as Director of Radio Promotions and Executive Editor of Emixshow Magazine he secured and exceeded the expectations of new clients such as Arista, Def Jam, Reebok and Shady LTD and even played a vital role in the creation of Funkmaster Flex’s hugely successful annual Funkmaster Flex Celebrity Custom Car and Bike Show.
However, in 2004 Al decided it was time to take hold of his destiny and go for his dream. With years of experience under his belt and a crystal clear vision, Al ventured out on his own and founded ALMG. ALMG is a marketing, promotions, and digital distribution company that builds brands and relationships with consumers and tastemakers. Over the years, ALMG’s client list has read like a who’s who in entertainment, with the company servicing big names such as Def Jam, Rockstar Games, Interscope, Universal Records, Warner Bros., Capital Records, Sony BMG, Maybach Music, Disturbing Tha Peace, NUVO and more. Al prides himself on ALMG being a “small company that thinks big and acts quickly.” Don’t believe him? Just ask Clinton Sparks, Syndicated Radio Personality / Producer, Get Familiar, E! TV who says “ALMG is one of the most efficient companies that I’ve worked with … Their ability to market your product is unmatched and their follow up is equally tenacious” or Atlantic Records Reggae recording artist Cham, “ALMG helped me land my first single on the Billboard Charts. They give their clients extra personal attention and commitment. I highly recommend this company.”
In addition to being an entrepreneur and successfully running his ALMG empire, Al also produces, DJs and co-hosts a show on Eminem’s Sirius/Channel Shade 45/XM 66 for DJ Tony Touch and recently launched Allindstrom.com, a website based around the idea that the younger generation finds their information on the music business from various forms of entertainment. The goal of Allindstrom.com is to provide original content that is not only informational, but has enough of an entertainment value to keep people logging on for more.
Al’s inside knowledge of the entertainment business allows him to realistically focus on the needs of the client and then initiate and implement plans that not only sparks ingenuity, but helps his clients exceed their goals as well. His zeal for his work is unmatched and proves that he will be an indomitable force in the industry and definitely someone to keep an eye on.
