It’s a beautiful Thing

Click Models of Atlanta
and
J Pervis Talent Agency

Click Models of Atlanta has been placing the South’s most unforgettable faces, such as classic beauty Niki Taylor, in national and global ad campaigns for over 22 years. Over the past few decades, Click’s premiere talent has been an integral part of the advertising and brand development for several major companies such as Coca-Cola, Domino’s, Spanx and Goody’s, that were founded locally and have helped anchor Atlanta’s economy. In 2010, anticipating the industry’s growing needs, Click Models of Atlanta approached J Pervis Talent to create a strategic partnership providing clients with high fashion models as well as top television, film, radio, and theater talent all under one roof. The agencies are separate entities but are located together in the Midtown Atlanta area near Turner Studios. Joy and Jayme Pervis lead J Pervis Talent, and Jenni Lubo is at the helm of the Atlanta market for Click. Her unique insight has pushed Click even further in the advertising industry during a time where many agencies have closed doors or fled to other markets.

Click Model Management, Inc. was founded in 1980 in New York City by Frances Grill, Joey Grill, and Allan Mindel. The name “CLICK” is in homage to the sound a camera makes and to the photographers and crew who make magic happen in the fashion and advertising industry.

Over the past 30 plus years, Click has added offices throughout the United States and currently represents over 1,000 models with divisions focusing on Women, Men, Plus Size, Runway, Showroom, FIT, Lifestyle and Television Commercials. Click Model Management’s talent division also represents some of the film industry’s most recognizable talent from major feature films and television shows, such as Lucy Liu and Marsha Gay Harden, and even discovered singer Whitney Houston decades ago.

Many of the world’s most famous faces such as Isabella Rossellini, Uma Thurman, Whitney Houston, Elle MacPherson and Grace Jones have been represented by Click. The agency maintains a tight affiliation with Flick East-West Talents, one of the most successful television commercial agencies in the country representing hundreds of actors and actresses as well as many of our models for television commercial work. Additionally, Click works with Framework Entertainment, one of the premier bi-coastal theatrical management and production companies whose clients are world-renowned for their careers in film, television, stage and music.

The Atlanta branch of Click was founded by Brandon Lewis and is still mentored by him. It has been unstoppable since its inception in 1995 and with Jenni Lubo in charge, they are quickly adapting to the ever-evolving fashion and advertising industry. Ms. Lubo has been a fashion model working in the industry for over 20 years with her modeling career beginning in the US and working overseas in several main markets. After college, and while still being employed as a model, she leveraged this wealth of fashion industry knowledge and entered the modeling business by founding a boutique tradeshow modeling company in Las Vegas, NV. Thereafter, she moved to Italy to work in Milan modeling for a year before returning to the United States. In 2015, Ms. Lubo was hand-selected and recruited to transition from her modeling career into a fashion executive, by taking the reins as the Director of Click Models of Atlanta. They currently represent over 200 models with divisions focusing on the general fashion and commercial categories but also including Influencers and Lifestyle.

Ms. Lubo runs all aspects of Click Models of Atlanta. Her vast network and first-hand knowledge of the industry has brought Click a unique edge in discovering diverse and exciting new talent and creative methods by which to meet the unique needs of photographers, art directors, and high fashion/commercial print clients. Click has established business with upscale clients such as Tom Ford, Etro, Nordstrom, Macy’s, Ralph Lauren, Spanx, M.A.C., Chloe, Dolce & Gabbana, Carters, Champs, Nike, Delta, Coca-Cola, Home Depot and Belk. Click models of Atlanta currently represents Niki Taylor, who was one of People Magazine’s 50 Most Beautiful People, was the youngest spokesmodel to sign with CoverGirl and has graced the covers of Sports Illustrated, Allure, Vogue, ELLE, Marie Claire, Self Magazine, and Shape Magazine.
