Chadwick Models started in November 1976 when founder Peter Chadwick took over Griffin Models with business partner Stuart Cameron based in Cooper St Paddington.
Martin Walsh joined the agency as young model in 1981 and after 12 years based in New York and another business under his belt returned to Sydney to go into partnership with Peter in 1994.
Peter Chadwick retired from the business in 2007 with Martin assuming the CEO role as major shareholder. Melbourne Manager and shareholding director Matthew Anderson continues to be a driving force within the business. With an accompanying Academy attached to the Perth Division our West Australian operations have gone from strength to strength under the guidance of long term manager Tanya Muia.
Since its inception it’s been the dedicated team at Chadwick that has consistently set us apart. Skilled, passionate, experienced, determined, understanding and loyal. Although Australia’s largest Model Agency we operate as a family, with our agents the most experienced and highly regarded in the business some with us for over 20 and 15 years, others from client back grounds and others who started with us as successful models themselves.
It is the cohesive team effort approach to our models careers from development to international success that has created and maintained the highest reputation that CHADWICK MODELS deserves wholeheartedly.
