The Brown Agency was created when Wilhelmina, Austin took over Heyman Talent South. The Brown Agency is the only full-service agency in Austin, Texas, meaning they represent talent and models. Wilhemina Austin is one of the most respected agencies in central Texas for modeling talent while Heyman Talent South was one of the most successful acting agencies in Austin. Now combined as The Brown Agency, they provide one of the leading agencies for fashion and print models as well as talent in the greater Austin, Texas area. In 2015 the agency was promoting over four hundred and fifty talent and models.
The CEO of The Brown Agency, Justin Brown, worked his way through college as a model. He studied business management and worked at many different agencies while learning the business. He was very successful at development and placement of models. This meant he trained the models and either found them local jobs or helped them move on to bigger assignments. Before coming to the Brown Agency, he started another full-service agency, JB Models and Talent. The theatrical division of The Brown Agency is headed by former Heyman Talent South president, Michael Bonnee. He specifically works with the talent part of the company and promotes aspiring talent in their chosen field. The Brown Agency models and talent work for big brand names including Luis Vuitton, Dell, Toyota, L’Oreal and a host of other companies. The Brown Agency models have walked the runways at New York Fashion Week, Austin Fashion Week, Dallas Fashion Week, and Miami Swim Week.
The Brown Agency is known for developing its talent and models for a large scale market. Brown faced some setbacks when some of the Austin models were not moving on to more national jobs. The Austin market was a little more eclectic demanding piercings, tattoos, and trendy hair styles, while the Dallas market looks more subtlety in their models. The Brown Agency strives to deliver the most professional and beautiful models by choosing to represent only the best. Their talent is not only skilled but dependable as well. The Brown Agency wants to produce the best models and talent it possibly can in Central Texas.
