In September of 2015, the only full-service modeling & talent agency in Austin TX was launched, “Brown Modeling Agency”. Since then it has become the leading commercial talent and modeling agency in central Texas, working with some of the biggest name brands in the world like Louis Vuitton, L’Oréal, Toyota, Dell and thousands more and their models took the runways of New York Fashion Week, Miami Swim Week, Austin Fashion Week, Dallas Fashion Week and many more
One of the few agencies of its kind in all of Texas, The Brown Agency is the result of a merger between two of the largest talent agencies in the region, “Wilhelmina Austin” and “Heyman Talent-South”.
Heyman Talent-South was founded over 5 years ago by Michael B. Bonnée, and was one of the most successful talent/acting agencies in Austin, while Wilhelmina Austin was launched in 2010 also in Austin by Justin Brown and was one of the most respected agencies for modeling talent. With two already successful agencies joining forces to create The Brown Modeling Agency, it’s no wonder it’s one of the biggest agencies in the industry.
Michael B. Bonnee still continues to lead the theatrical division of the agency as Justin Brown is president and CEO of the business.
Justin Brown has been in the modeling business for many years, matter-of-fact, he himself did some modeling to help pay his way through college where he studied business management. He also worked training models as well as assisting them in getting jobs and more. Brown went to California when he was just 18, where he gained a lot of experience and learned a lot about the business working for different agencies. and then went to New York and learned even more while working in the same industry. In 2005, Brown moved to Austin where he started his own development business, it wasn’t until 2008 that he started the full-service agency called, “JB Models and Talent “ that became known as Wilhelmina national agency in 2010.
The Brown Agency now represents both models and actors placing them in commercials, television, films, videos, voiceovers, fashion, print, catalogs, runway, trade shows, corporate & promotional events and more. His decision to integrate with Heyman Talent-South was a very bright move for Justin Brown as The Brown Agency is a huge success and gets better every day!
