Randall is one of the most experienced talent agents in the country, starting his career in the mid eighties. He was an agent in Florida for almost a decade before moving back to Atlanta, spending almost two years as an account executive in advertising. In 1998, he was hired as the senior agent at A.M.T. (Atlanta Models & Talent, Inc.), the oldest agency in the South, which was established in 1959.
In 2005, he and another veteran agent at A.M.T., along with some other partners, including two attorneys, founded Talent Network.
We represent a well qualified, boutique roster, and rarely work on low budget assignments, non-union, or extra jobs (with the exception of non-profits, such as the Boy Scouts of America and the American Cancer Society).
Our actors work reoccurring roles in television episodics, and as contract players in Feature Film, in addition to commercials. Our models book national print campaigns, including magazine covers, editorials, catalogs, and regional commercial/ lifestyle work.
Randall has worked with most of the top 50 Fortune 500 companies, including, and in addition to; Disney, Ford, General Motors, Chrysler, Toyota, Honda, Coca-Cola (and Pepsi….Shhh!), Wall Mart, K Mart, Target, General Electric, IBM, Hewlett Packard, SAP, Oracle, AT&T, Verizon, Cisco, Wells Fargo, Bank of America, Home Depot, Lowes, Eckerd, Walgreens, Johnson & Johnson, UPS, Fed Ex, Honeywell, Lockheed Martin, Sears, Delta Airlines, American Express, Visa, MasterCard, Time Warner, Turner Studios, McDonalds, Macys, Saks Fifth Avenue, Lands End, LL Bean, Vogue Magazine, Archer Daniels Midland, Proctor & Gamble, Microsoft, Met Life, Prudential, Humana, Pfizer Pharmaceuticals, Primerica, Georgia Pacific, Norfolk Southern Railways, Dow Chemical, Caterpillar, Comcast, Playboy, Anheuser Busch, Levi Strauss, Guess Jeans, Center for Disease Control, National Institute of Health, and the U.S. Army.
During his time as an agent in Florida, he was an active member of the Florida Motion Picture and Television Association (F.M.P.T.A.), serving for many years on both the state and local board of directors. Always eager to generate more business for his talent, and promote the Florida market, he helped lobby Governor Lawton Chiles, to create tax incentives for attracting more film and commercial business to the state. He was also instrumental in helping to structure talent agency laws.
Randall has always believed in the importance of educating those who are interested in pursuing a career in the talent industry. He has volunteered on numerous occasions throughout the years, to speak with students and other audiences, regarding the process of becoming a professional talent, how to avoid the pitfalls, and the absolute necessity of thorough research.
On almost any day off, Randall would rather be sailing, spending time with his amazing wife and two children, or tinkering with his old wooden Yawl. He’s proud of his family, which helped found our country, and has served since its inception. His father’s a retired Navy Captain, and his grandfather was a World War II veteran, who also played for the New York Yankees (with Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig), Boston Braves, and Celtics. His brother’s a former Navy S.E.A.L, and his Aunt was a teacher for forty six years in addition to being a Senator and environmentalist.
Representing talent, even after almost three decades, still excites him; especially when booking someone in their first major role, affirming the incredible dedication, and perseverance that’s required by everyone in this ultra competitive business.
