When Reno, Nevada native Justin Brown, the president and co-founder of the Central Texas based The Brown Agency, was in college working on his degree in business administration, he had a great career as a model. He did fashion shows from coast to coast and made a name for himself in front of the camera. But one of the things that made Justin Brown unique was his talent for improving other models as well. He was a natural at ‘development and placement’. Brown knew how to teach models to be more professional in how they carried themselves, then he would find them work in the big time.
After graduating from college and attaining all his dreams in front the camera as a model, Justin Brown moved to Austin, Texas in 2005. He spent some time enjoying its peaceful atmosphere and in 2008 Brown went back to doing one of the things he loved most. Preparing models and actors for the big time. He founded JB Models And Talent and began finding talented, good-looking people from Austin and other parts of Central Texas work all over the country. Nationally-known model agency Wilhelmina Austin became aware of his work and wanted to licensed his system. Instead, they joined forced in 2010. For more details visit Cruncbase.

The name of the organization was changed to The Brown Agency and Justin Brown works with the models while experienced acting coach Michael Bonnée works with the acting talent.
