In the words of Justin Brown, head of The Brown Agency, the city of Austin can often remain happy with its local successes and not look to develop a national and international level of recognition. The Brown Agency is looking to change the way Austin sees itself at local, national, and international level with a team of experts looking to find as much talent in the areas of modeling and theatrical activities as possible ton launch onto the national stage. Opening its doors in 2015, The Brown Agency has become a major success for the Wilhemina Austin agency which created The Brown Agency from the ashes of the Heyman Talent South agency.
According to Marketwired, Wilhemina Austin has already grown its own reputation as one of the leading modeling and talent agencies of the last few decades after finding a number of successful models and working with some of the top brands in the world. The chance to explore the available talent in Austin has been created alongside the founder of Heyman Talent South, Michael B. Bonnee who has agreed to use his skills as a talent agent to launch a theatrical department for those pursuing their ambitions in this area. Despite being one of the youngest modeling and talent agencies in the U.S. the agency has already placed its talent with a number of top companies including Louis Vuitton, Toyota, and Dell.
The Brown Agency will be headed by one of the rising talents of the talent industry in the form of Justin Brown, former model and an industry insider since the age of 18. Modeling went from a part-time role for Justin Brown in his college days to a full-time job by the age of 21; Brown has been at the heart of the talent industry for over a decade after he made the decision to work at a number of agencies in Los Angeles after leaving his home in Reno, Nevada. The role of Justin Brown with The Brown Agency comes after he moved to Austin, Texas in 2005 and began using his skills to assist models in developing their skills under the watchful eye of the Texas Workplace Commission. At the age of 35, Justin Brown became one of the youngest talent agency heads in the U.S. as he continues to seek out the most talented people in the U.S.
