About John Brown
“When you’re young and dumb, you think you can do anything,” John Brown says with a smile. To pay for business school, John found himself working in a modeling agency, but was far more fascinated with the workings behind the scenes. He began to learn everything he could about the industry and got a job in development and placement, where he would help models to become their best and land local jobs. So, at the beginning of his career, he was already doing what he does best at which is training and placing models. John Brown was very ambitious and determined to make his mark in the modeling industry. His love for Austin, Texas landed him there in 2005. He knew that it was a great starting place and jumped right to creating his own business. John always dreamed big and really worked hard to push for bigger better success.
Creating the Agency
John was hard at work with his JB Models and Talent, which offered full-services to models in preparing them for work and helping them find jobs. Still, Austin was a very proud city and did not like change. Trying to convince them to go to a national level would take something huge. Finally, a boom in the fashion industry demanding more runway shows had arrived, bringing an abundance of success and talent to his agency. The success John was experiencing, required expansion and the timing was just right. In 2015, The Wilhelmina Austin Agency took over the Heyman Talent-South and formed a mega modeling and talent agency now called, The Brown Agency. Merging these two reputable agencies together has created a powerhouse. This was a great move for everyone. Local talents could expand to a national level because both agencies were committed to discovering the best and preparing them for successful careers. For more details visit Market Wired.
