There is a new rumors that Beyonce has ditched her entire management team. According to Page Six, nixed her old general manager, Lee Anne Callahan-Longo in favor of Steve Pamon, who formerly worked for JPMorgan Chase’s head of sports and entertainment marketing and took the helm of Chase’s sponsorship of 2014 On the Run tour.
A source told PageSix, “Beyoncé basically cleaned house, got rid of her whole team, which included her cousin, and hired a new team. She wants to surround herself with business people who could take her career to an even higher level.” The insider added, “She has one album left to deliver before her deal is up with Columbia, plus she wants to make smarter decisions where it comes to touring, sponsorships and acting roles.”
Beyonce added Pamon to her Parkwood Entertainment company which run her entire career like artist management, music production, tours, motion pictures, TV specials and apparel.
Beyoncé’s rep, Yvette Noel-Schure, said in a statement: “Last year, Parkwood Entertainment created new departments and recruited new executives from the tech, business and entertainment sectors who joined the team to help grow Parkwood and its interests . . . Some senior staffers were given the opportunity to reposition and stay on. Some members . . . awakened [to] new interests and decided to follow personal routes. Lee Anne Callahan-Longo has worked with Beyoncé for the last 10 years. Their friendship supersedes business, and while she is no longer an employee of Parkwood, she will remain an imperative part of Beyoncé’s life.”
