Austin, Texas is the spot for a re-boot of a talent and modeling agency called Brown Agency. This is the melding of the modeling powerhouse Wilhelmina Brown Agency and the theatrical agency, Heyman Talent South in to one super force agency located on Guadalupe Street in downtown Austin.
Justin Brown is one of the leaders at the helm of the Brown Agency ship. As a young adult, Justin was involved in the modeling industry. He moved to California and bounced around through different agencies all the while garnering tidbits and pieces of modeling business operational knowledge. This is the knowledge base he drew from while heading up the Wilhelmina Brown agency.
Michael B. Bonnée is flexing his know-how as the leader of the acting talent portion of the agency. This is something he did quite well as the head and founder of Heyman Talent-South. As a director of the theatrical division he has placed talent on many television shows and theatrical appearances. By joining forces as the Brown Agency, these two supply the right people for theatrical and modeling needs with major brands like Dell, Toyota, Louis Vuitton and others.
Austin, Texas was chosen as the headquarters for this merged business. A launch party took place last December in the Austin area. In a display of the glam and glitz of the talent industry, this launch party featured a fashion show that drew special attention to the fresh faces of Austin. The Brown-Bonnée duo have put together an all-purpose agency for both aspiring talent and those looking for talent. You can visit their Instagram page.
