Established in 2015 when Wilhelmina Austin acquired Heyman Talent-South, The Brown Agency is Texas’s premier talent agencies providing the only full service firm in Austin and one of the few of Texas.
Wilhelmina Austin, founded in 2010, has been a force of modeling talent in the field. Heyman Talent-South has been renowned for acting talent. Combined, their forces are unstoppable and will provide clients all across the country with reliable and remarkable talent. Although the company is based in Austin, there is an office in Los Angeles.
Former head of Wilhelmina Austin, Justin Brown, is head of the company and CEO while Michael B. Bonnee, founder of Heyman Talent-South, is still an integral part of operations as leader of the theatrical division.
Brown has worked in the business as a model and worked his way through business school modeling for companies like Lucky Jeans.
Arriving in California shortly after he turned 18, he spent time at several different agencies learning the tricks of the trade and gaining valuable experience.
He was more interested in the management of talent than actually being talent so he gained a position in a field called “Development and Placement” where he worked to teach and refine the skills of new models and then helped them find work.
He moved back to Austin in 2005 and started his own agency. He says he just connected with Austin. It was a place that both spoke to him and would be a good place to build his own firm and reputation.
Brown has the expertise to fit the right model or actor with the right region. For example, he says that Austin is more “funky”, looking for people with tattoos and piercings who seem to fit the edgy, independent mold that Austin fits while in places like Dallas need those with more conservative looks and personas.
