208 Management is the number one model management agency in the DMV Market expanding to be a prominent contender in the major international and domestic markets in the coming years. 208 Management is currently based in Baltimore, Maryland.
Founded by Syranno Wilkens in late 2019, 208 Management was created to offer two key resources: an outlet for talent from the DC, Maryland, and Virginia (DMV) markets, that introduces industry-standard concepts not previously adapted to the area. As well as an agency that specializes in the developmental growth, placement, and representation of models of color.
208 proudly stands behind the personal growth of every model represented, embracing the individuality of each model to shine both independently and as a unified front. Equipping models with the tools and knowledge to become strong individual brands inside and outside of the modeling industry. 208 respectively services the Tri-state and DMV markets.
Syranno has more than a decade worth of industry knowledge transitioning from fashion photography to model representation. Growing up in a time where supermodels and models were the true stars of the industry. He aims to bring that era back by helping models regain not only their strength but their foothold in this industry.
208 puts full support behind their clients and the vision that they have put in motion for their brand growth and expansion. We are your trusted agency for professionally trained and dedicated models who look to bring your brand identity to the forefront.
“ We have to stop treating models as if they are expendable, they are assets, not liabilities and should be treated as such ”
