Having acquired Heyman Talent South in 2015, Justin Brown, the former head of the Wilhelmina Austin agency has re-launched as The Brown Agency. Partnered with the founder of Heyman Talent South, Michael B. Bonnee, Justin Brown has made The Brown Agency a perfect merging of the two former agencies. The Brown Agency has quickly become the leading talent agency in the Central Texas area.
Justin Brown was born in Reno, Nevada and grew up in Susanville, Califoria. Immediately upon turning 18, he moved to Southern California and began working with a modeling agency. By the age of 21, he had placed an estimated 20 to 30 percent of the talents in the modeling industry. In 2005, he decided to move to Austin to start his own development. By 2008 he had launched JB Models and Talent, which was licensed by the national Wilhelmina agency. This all led to his eventual merging with Heyman Talent South to create The Brown Agency.
The Brown Agency’s headquarters are in Austin, Texas, with offices in Dallas and a presence in Los Angeles. Representing fashion, film, print and commercial models, The Brown Agency works with over 450 talented women, men and children. Describing themselves as, “inspired by the talent and beauty of the people who allow us to work side by side with them,” The Brown Agency is committed to representing models and actors of all backgrounds. They represent everyone from young children to elderly couples. The agency’s Instagram page is a beautiful collection of fresh, diverse faces ranging in age and attributes. From unique beauties in fashion modeling to endearing children in commercial modeling, The Brown Agency presents a wide-range of exceptional talents.
Notable talents represented by The Brown Agency include fashion models Amanda Wells and Paul Evan, as well as commercial models such as Adam Duncan and Debra Dozier. Theatrical talents represented by The Brown Agency include Erik Fellows and Marqita Delgado among many others.
