ATB represents its talent "across the board:" theatrically, commercially, in print, hosting, voiceovers and dance. The limited client roster and staff of 10 enables ATB to remain committed to the goal of developing high quality talent while providing the personalized atmosphere of a management company.

Across the Board’s talent has been seen on numerous TV shows, films, commercials and theatre productions. Their models and photographers have been a part of major fashion campaigns and have been seen across the pages of domestic and international magazines.

ATB is honored to announce its move up into the big leagues. Using talent from across the board, ATB is currently packaging a major feature film as well as television series. As the client list becomes larger and more high-profile projects are being tackled, founder and CEO Guy Kochlani avows: “No matter how much we expand, our original business model will always remain on point. We provide one-on-one care and service to each client, no matter what.”

ATB represents talent and models in Los Angeles, Las Vegas and New York, with offices in Los Angeles and New York-Times Square. There are plans to open offices in London, Paris, and Tel Aviv.

Since 2002, the Talent Managers Association Seymour Heller Awards have defined excellence in the fields of casting and management.  Co-founded in 1954 (and originally called the National Conference of Personal Managers), the TMA “supports and encourages high ethical business standards and practices” and is “self-regulating and is dedicated to raising the standards of the profession of talent management.”  The Heller Awards, which are voted on by members of the TMA, honor the Casting Director’s, Agents and Managers who have shown exemplary initiative and drive.
