Meredith Model & Talent Agency opened in 1977 in New Jersey under the direction of Joyce Meredith. Joyce was originally a model in the Twin Cities & New York before going on to open one of the most respected agencies on the East Coast. The agency philosophy was based on what Joyce cares about most – integrity, perseverance and compassion.
In 1991, Joyce’s daughter, Stacy Meredith, left her career as an art director in New York City and opened a second office in St. Paul, Minnesota. Continuing her mother’s tradition, the agency flourished under Stacy for over 25 years to become a leader in the Midwest for models and actors.
In 2017, Stacy sold the agency to her senior booking agent, Madelyn Kalla, who continues to honor the Meredith legacy by providing superior quality and professional service, while maintaining the highest ethical standards. Stacy remains active in major contract negotiations and serves as consultants for Meredith Models East in New Jersey and Meredith Model & Talent Agency in Minnesota.
With its continual presence, Meredith represents over 1,000 women, men and children ranging from infants to seniors while always scouting for fresh talent. As a full service commercial agency, SAG/AFTRA franchised, Meredith continues to develop and promote talent to clientele both locally and nationally for print advertising, film, TV, radio and fashion assignments.
