Tina Lorenzo, the sister and business partner to Chris “Gotti” Lorenzo and has worked side by side with her brother for 25 years now. She started her own construction company in 1986, Above All Contracting, Inc. and began as a concrete subcontractor doing City, State and Federal projects. Her drive, ambition and work ethic is unmatched. She bid the work, ran the jobs as the on-site project manager, worked with the men in almost every aspect of the work and maintained the office and all financial responsibilities. Her brother Chris started working for her from day 1. After several years of successful bidding and performance on the jobs she started to bid for her own projects as the General Contractor and took Chris Lorenzo on as her business partner and changed the name to C&C Construction, Inc.
Here is where the partnership between the siblings really began and took root. These two had to learn how to work seamlessly together, how to lead and make important decisions together, how to work with budgets, and make smart financial decisions, how to take an abandoned piece of property and turn it into a beautiful park and playground. They look to apply this same dedication to their new artists.
When her other brother Irv “Gotti” Lorenzo decided that the Music Industry was his calling, she supported him 100% buying him the tools of his then DJ trade, and providing money for the development of his first artist. Chris left the construction company first to go to work full time with Irv at Murder Inc., but shortly thereafter Tina followed. Always in the background helping her brothers with paperwork and financial knowledge, then came into the business with them firstly by building and running the Recording Studio and eventually coming in full time to run the Office and Financial Division.
Tina has been working in the Music Industry for 15 years. When handling finances you have the unique opportunity to learn every single aspect of any business. You have to interact with everyone affiliated directly as well as indirectly. Construction was instrumental in giving both Tina and Chris the ability to micro-manage and multitask projects in business. There are so many integral moving components to running a successful business so you must be able to keep up with 50 things at a time and still plan forward. Their joint business partnerships as well as their mutual respect and understandings of each others strengths and weaknesses make them formidable and great business partners.
Tina presently owns and operates her own Financial Services business. One of her main clients is recording Artist Ja Rule, there she continually stays in touch with many aspects of the entertainment field. Ja Rule continues to tour the world, which gives her the unique ability to get our Artist stage performance opportunities through her contacts with various promoters worldwide. She has firsthand knowledge in obtaining and maintaining various streams of revenues that successful recording artists are entitled to.
Tina welcomes and looks forward to the opportunity of working with her brother to create a new and exciting business that will help to create a new innovative way to look at what a “Music Label” can and should be. She can’t wait to see WHAT’S NEXT……..
