Ken Barboza founded his agency in 1979 and was among the first creative talent agencies of its kind. At a time in the industry when only photographers were represented Ken broke the mold and began representing hair stylist, make up artist and fashion stylist. This bold approach signaled a new era in the industry, which has now become an industry standard. Clients were now able to hire a package of talent ensuring control over the level of talent and in addition manage their budgets.
Initially specializing in the ethnic market, Ken Barboza Assoc. now thrives in the Multi-cultural marketplace representing talent in both New York, and Los Angeles and additionally offering talent throughout the country in over twenty five states. Managing an array of talent in a demanding industry Ken Barboza Associates has been a respected force for over three decades. Few agencies have the experience or the knowledge vital to servicing such a diversified industry. With a keen eye for talent, a passion for professionalism and a desire to give to the future talents of the industry Ken Barboza Associates has built a reputation thought-out the industry.
Joined by Shani Barboza and Kagan Suer Ken Barboza Associates has ushered in a new generation dedicated managers for future generations.
