TIFFANY ATWOOD (CEO/AGENT)

Tiffany Atwood is owner and CEO of RPM Talent Group/ The Agency.  Created in 2005, RPM quickly rose to one of the top SAG/AFTRA/WGA Franchised Agencies, with successful Commercial, Print, Theatrical, Voice-Over, Extreme, and Literary Divisions.  Tiffany’s career preceded The Agency with 20 plus years in front of the camera, appearing in television series and films such as Men Behaving Badly, Life with Roger, Point Charles, Beyond Belief, Miami Heat, many national commercials, and a professional career with the Joffrey Ballet.  With a business resume that includes over a decade of Guest Relations and Marketing with The House of Blues-Sunset Strip, and establishing the Billboard Live-Sunset Strip, her business and PR skills were cultivated working with some of Hollywood’s most elite.

Her unique experiences, industry relationships, and first-hand knowledge of the entertainment world continue to provide a successful business synergy for all of RPM’s clients. In addition to these business advantages, Miss Atwood has three children- twins that are 8 years old and a 12 year old son. Her children have also been involved with commercials and print campaigns that have equipped her with personal knowledge on how to best protect and promote children in this business. She has appeared on countless panels and boards that educate parents on how to get their children started in this somewhat confusing industry correctly.  “Safe Stardom” is a wonderful book written by one of her close friends, attorney Robert Pafundi, and has become a bible of sorts for many….

 

“It can be a scary thing if you don’t know who to trust when first starting, but something that I feel is forgotten these days is- THAT IT SHOULD BE FUN FOR YOUR CHILD!  The BUSINESS is very important, but that is why we are here and why it’s important to have representatives that you trust and listen too, and also why it’s important to be with someone who is SAG Franchised and provides that protection. It is also VERY important that this business should ALWAYS come second to growing up! There are some children this business is meant for like my oldest son, who has always loved to be on set and to follow direction, who thrives on it-and others that do not enjoy that type of attention or pressure- like my youngest, so you must listen to your kiddos.!”  Tiffany Atwood

 

Tiffany credits much of her agencies success to happily surrounding herself with other like- minded artists and credited agents and employees, including partner Jennifer Sims who like Tiffany, grew up in St. Louis, MO. This team continues to instill a shared set of values and “Help Ever-Hurt Never” mentality that RPM works hard to inject into their footprint whenever possible. RPM’s Monthly Days of Service, are a great way to come together as an Agency or just as aware individuals who want to help others in the community. RPM has come together to give back to Feed the Children, LAPD, Habitat For Humanity, Angel Food LA, and Burbank Unified Schools just to name a few. They welcome all types of opportunities and often promote their clients’ many “good deeds” on their social media pages as they look for well- rounded artists who are making the world a better place.

When interviewed by Breaking Into Hollywood about her leadership position at RPM and owning a woman owned business in Hollywood, Tiffany revealed a great nugget of insight into her true feelings about her company and career path….

“I am a very fortunate person as my experiences and journeys have provided me the perfect  conditions to assist others in achieving their dreams.  Now honestly, what can be better than that?”  Tiffany Atwood
