President/CEO of Liner Entertainment Group, LLC & Executive Producer with Liner Films LLC, Dianna S. Liner

Ms. Liner brings more than 20 years of experience, having worked with many highly successful professionals and organizations in a career that has touched virtually every aspect of the entertainment world. She started her career as a backup vocalist, touring with bands such as Journey and The Hothouse Flowers and more. With an interest in learning the business side of music, she became an assistant to the record label representatives for N’Sync and other notable touring groups in the early 90’s. This provided her the essential exposure to the nuances of large event promotion, from artist and venue procurement to sponsor packaging and marketing throughput. She parleyed this experience into a role at MTV Networks as a roving music reporter from 1992-1995, then into positions at MIX 95FM and 104 KRBE FM, the top pop radio stations in Houston from 1995-1998. She became a marketing representative for Aware/Columbia Records in 1998, where she worked directly with notable groups and performers such as John Mayer, Five For Fighting, and others. She later moved on to Tommy Boy Records, working as an artist representative for Everlast, Amber and others. Ms Liner has raised over $50M for indie films and continues to do so under Liner Films LLC.
