Now Entering Russ's World
The Brown Agency is the top commercial talent and modeling agency in Texas. They provide their clients with several options for talent, as well as giving talent exposure to several popular brand names, including Louis Vuitton and L’Oréal. The Brown Agency was founded in 2015 with the relaunch and renaming of Wilhelmina Austin, and their acquisition of Heyman Talent-South.
Before The Brown Agency existed, both companies were highly successful in their own right. The Wilhelmina Austin, founded in 2010 out of Austin, Texas, was a respected agency for modeling talent. On the other side of the deal, Heyman Talent-South was one of the most well known acting talent agencies in Austin. Thus as reported by mystatesman.com, the merger has allowed the companies to share bring their clientele together, as well as assist their clients by giving them a broader array of talent than either an acting agency or a modeling agency could alone, as confirmed by employees of the agency.
Michael B. Bonnée, who guides the development of the theatrical division, has said on his Instagram account “We are thrilled to be joining The Brown Agency family. Our combined talent and expertise make this a very exciting opportunity.” Meanwhile, CEO and president of The Brown Agency Justin Brown has said “Merging with Heyman Talent-South and becoming a full-service agency is an integral part of our growth strategy and commitment to serving our talent and clients. Both agencies find pride in selecting the best, prepping them on a larger market level and delivering the most professional, elegant and dependable talent.”
