Today, Wilhelmina Models is one of the largest and most successful model management companies in the world representing women, men and children throughout its offices in New York, Los Angeles, and Miami. Scouting and developing new talent, servicing a diverse clientele and successful marketing of the company keeps Wilhelmina Models on top of an ever-changing industry.
The ability to recognize and nurture new talent is just one of the reasons Wilhelmina Models continues to be a leader in the fashion business. The company works with hundreds of local model management companies in the U.S. and overseas to scout and develop new models each year. Wilhelmina Models also utilizes national model searches in conjunction with top magazines such as Fitness, More, Essence, Latina and Grace to reach millions of new people each year.
Wilhelmina Models is truly a full service broad based company which represents talent ranging from super star women and men, to full-figured women, sophisticated women and men and kids. Wilhelmina Models places its talent with an extremely wide spectrum of companies such as Versace, Donna Karan, Prada, Hugo Boss, Banana Republic, Nike, L'Oreal, Clinique and Clairol, just to name a few.
As an innovator in the industry, Wilhelmina Models became the first fashion company to develop a specific division to exclusively represent premier talent in the worlds of music, sports and entertainment. Today, that division, called Wilhelmina Artist Management ("WAM"), is one of the top in the industry with a roster that includes music superstars Usher, Brandy and Jessica Simpson, sports superstars such as NBA all-star Stephon Marbury, rising PGA Tour star Matt Kuchar and NFL star running back Eddie George, along with celebrities such as Jamie-Lynn Sigler (The Sopranos) and Angie Everheart (model/actress, Jade). WAM helps create, develop, and maintain the brand identity of the artists and athletes through securing major fashion campaigns, endorsements, marketing opportunities and tour sponsorships. The Division has secured commercial endorsements, fashion campaigns and sponsorships for its artists with companies such as Coca-Cola, Nestle, Hugo Boss, Nike, Donna Karan, Candie's Shoes, Cover Girl, L'Oreal, Mattel and Nautica.
Wilhelmina Models is a company with a unique perspective; it brings knowledge of what happens in front of the camera as well as the business that goes on behind it. Nearly 35 years after Wilhelmina Models was founded, a fashion-forward, diverse and internationally known company continues to thrive.
