About ONE Management Modeling Agency 

ONE Management is a full-fledged entertainment agency representing models and other talents like singers, rappers, actors, and more. The agency has four locations in Los Angeles,  New York, Chicago, and Spain. 

Despite being considered young compared to other modeling agencies, it made a name for itself by managing the careers of Niki Taylor, Saweetie, Petra Nemcova, DJ Snake, Fabulous, Eugenia Silva, and more. 


Founded in 2001 by Scott Lipps, ONE Management was strictly a model management company and fashion house. However, in 2006, ONE Management became an entertainment company looking to bridge the gap between music and branding. 

This led to ONE Management expanding and opening a location in Los Angeles with Darren Goldberg for film and television. 

Today, ONE Management offers its managing skills and talent from four locations with some of the most sought-after models, rappers, singers, actors, and more. 


Each ONE Management location is home to both female and male models.
