Heyman Talent-South has been acquired by Wilhelmina Austin. They have re-launched it. Now it is known as The Brown Agency.

In this way, two of the biggest talent agencies in this region have got together. This has led to both of them joining their respective forces. This will help in leveraging the unique strengths as well as capabilities of each of them. Hence The Brown Modelling Agency will become the only agency in Austin that will be providing full services.

Wilhelmina Austin had been launched by Justin Brown in 2010 in Austin. Today it is a highly respected agency in Texas for talent in modeling. Heyman Talent-South has managed to build a successful talent agency in acting in Austin over the past three years. These two companies getting together to launch a new company would mean that clients will have access to a much broader portfolio. This would include experienced talent. Besides, the talent will get much greater opportunities all across the country.

The Brown Modelling Agency will have its headquarters in Austin. It will have offices in Dallas as well as Los Angeles. The head of Wilhelmina Austin, Justin Brown, will become the CEO and president of The Brown Modelling Agency. The founder of Heyman Talent-South, Michael B. Bonné, will be heading the theatrical division of The Brown Modelling Agency.

Justin Brown stated that this merger with Heyman Talent-South and turning into a full-service agency will aid in the growth strategy of the company. This is an integral part of their commitment to serving their talent as well as clients. Both the agencies are happy as they can now select the best. Now they can launch them on a much larger market platform. In this way, they would be able to deliver talent that will be professional, and elegant besides being dependable too. Now they can do all this on a much larger scale.

Michael B. Bonnée is happy to become a part of The Brown Modelling Agency. He will be guiding the growth and development of the theatrical division for this Agency. He believes that the combined efforts, talent along with expertise can help to make it an exciting opportunity for all.

The financials of this agreement are yet to be disclosed to the public. There will be a formal celebration of this launch. This will be sometime in early December.

The Brown Modelling Agency is located in central Texas. It is a leading agency that provides commercial talent. This is a modeling agency that provides a wide portfolio of talent options to its clients.

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin are co-founders of one of the most respected newspapers in Arizona. They founded Phoenix New Times in the early 70s during their college years. Both men dropped out of college to focus on their newspaper. Their paper quickly became one of the foremost respected papers in the industry.

Nearly a decade later, they began building Village Voice Media. It started when they acquired Westword, a like-minded paper in Denver. Eventually, VVM grew into a multimillion-dollar media conglomerate consisting of 17 like-minded papers from all over the country. Recently, they sold VVM to some long-time executives.

A while ago, Lacey and Larkin were subjected to tremendous trauma at the hands of an abusive sheriff. They suffered months of harassment that inevitably ended in their arrest. The sheriff was upset that their local paper, Phoenix New Times, wrote several articles detailing his illegal activities.

They were immediately released after the nation found out about the little war and sued Maricopa County. The money they got from the settlement, $3.75 million, was used to create the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund. That fund supports Arizona-based organizations that advocate for migrant rights and civic participation. Phoenix New Times is an avid supporter of Mexican migrants.

The actually abuse they suffered started long before their arrest. Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio seemed like a benign character to most people. Upon further inspection, New Times discovered a slew of inappropriate and illegal activities. It immediately became vital that the people of Arizona know what kind of man Joe Arpaio really is.

Phoenix New Times began writing articles about his financial irregularities and rampant mismanagement in his own office. He regularly abused his power, especially when harassing Latinos. Despite being a man of the law, he actively encouraged anti-Mexican fear-mongering.

His fear-mongering tactics didn’t stop at abusing local Latinos. After learning that New Times wrote articles about his activities, he started harassing the New Times executives. When Lacey and Larkin refused to back off, he had them arrested in the middle of the night.

Both men were forced from their homes and into unmarked SUVs. They were then taken to separate jails were Arpaio tried to break them. He tried to use fake subpoenas, signed by one of his corrupt prosecutors, to force Lacey or Larkin to give up the names of their employees and anyone who might have read any of their articles about him.
