Nick Jonas, Demi Lovato, Jessica Simpson, and Naomi Sims got their start in modeling with the Wilhelmina Modeling Agency. Wilhelmina Cooper was a Dutch supermodel who created The Wilhelmina Agency. She knew that she could work with models in a different way than the male dominated industry was managing them. The Wilhelmina Modeling Agency worked with people of all ages and ethnic cultures, as well as individuals in the music and theatrical industries.
The Wilhelmina Modelling Agency became known globally as a premier agency whose reputation was that if you worked for Wilhelmina you automatically got a foot in the door. Another U.S. local Austin, Texas agency also carried a prominent reputation in the industry. The agency was known as the Heyman Talent-South Agency. The name that brought these two preeminent agencies together was Justin Brown.
Justin Brown began his career as a model both with the Wilhelmina Agency and the Heyman Talent Agency. In college Justin studied business management but he knew in his heart that he wanted to work in the modelling agency. After he graduated his first job that he applied to and was accepted was at The Wilhelmina Modelling Agency. Before long, he was managing models himself and years later he decided to create his own agency which he called The JB Models and Talent Agency.
Justin provided employment opportunities for models, actors, and children. With the help of his former contacts at the Wilhelmina National Agency and Heyman Talent, JB Models and Talent Agency became a name that designers asked for in their international runway shows and that advertisers requested from Justin’s portfolio. This propelled Justin Brown and his agency to top tier status.
It wasn’t long before JB Models and Talent Agency merged with the Heyman Talent-South Agency. The Heyman Talent-South Agency was developed by Michael B. Bonnee. The Heyman Agency also featured a division which supported actors in live stage productions. This division would now be a part of the JB Models and Talent Agency. Justin invited Mr. Bonnee to remain as the theatrical expertise. Check out blog.brownagency.co
