Heyman Talent-South was sold to Wilhelmina Austin and renamed The Brown Agency. The two agencies were the regions’ largest agencies. Their combined assets and abilities now makes The Brown Agency, the only full-service agency in Austin. It is also one of only a few full-service agencies in the whole state of Texas.
Ms Austin launched her modeling talent agency in Austin in 2010. Her agency has grown into one of the most distinguished modeling agencies in central Texas. Heyman Talent-South had built their acting talent agency up over the past three years. Now with the two agencies combined, with both modeling and acting talent, The Brown Agency gives their clients a larger portfolio to choose from for talent. The talent will also have greater opportunities all across the country.
The Brown Agency will have its main headquarters in Austin, offices in Dallas and a company office in Los Angeles. Justin Brown was the head of Wilhelmina Austin’s agency and will now be CEO and president of The Brown Agency. Justin did mostly fit modeling to help get him through college. He modeled what was called “skinny jeans” and made $100 an hour.
Justin studied business management in college, and was really interested in the placement and development of talent for the business. He would train models to be pros and placed them in jobs or helped them to get into the big time. He would make sure they had the right photo shots and introduced them to the right people in the largest agencies. He and his staff were able to place 20 to 30 percent of their talents, which was considered a high percentage for the industry.
The theatrical division will be led by Michael B. Bonnee, who was Heyman Talent-South founder. Michael said, he was thrilled to be merging with The Brown Agency, and the combined talent will make for a very exciting opportunity for all involved. The Brown Agency nurtures and develops the careers of all the talents involved and sends them into successful careers in film, commercial, television, fashion and print.
Justin Brown remarked how the merging with Heyman Talent-South and growing into a full-service talent agency, is all part of their growth plan. The Brown Agency is committed to serving their clients and talents. Both agencies prepared their talents to deliver a professional, dependable and elegant talent to their clients. Now everything is going to be done on a larger and more sophisticated scale.
Since the opening of The Brown Agency, models have been doing commercial spots for some of the largest brands in the world. They include Louis Vuitton, Toyota, Loreal, Dell and thousands of other companies. Brown’s fashion models have hit the runways in Miami for Swim Week, Dallas Fashion Week, and most importantly The New York Fashion Week. President of The Brown Agency, Justin Brown states that the agency is only as good as their talent. You can visit blog.brownagency.co to know more.
