Mercury’s Booker Kel Taylor has been in the industry since 2001 when she worked as a model/actress. She consecutively studied Advertising Design at University. Eventually, the two worlds combined and Kel was being asked to work behind the scenes to train and prep talent at her agency. Having the understanding of what a client wants, and the special understanding of what a performer needs; a booker was born. Kel started her first business in 2011 and she never looked back.

Mercury Management was founded in May 2018 by 3 women who saw a need for change in the industry and grabbed onto the opportunity to create it. We each have worked within many roles in the industry and saw the problems that were occuring within it. Having been in their shoes, we loved the idea of working with talent in a more ethical & progressive way. Our entire goal is to build healthy relationships with talent & with clients, relationships that can last a lifetime.
We provide models & actors to work in the markets of Philadelphia, it’s surrounding areas, New Jersey, New York, Baltimore, & DC. We also work on worldwide castings and have landed jobs in London & Paris.
We charge no upfront costs to sign with us, to receive our castings, nor to book a job. We only make money when our models & actors book jobs. Therefore we will rely on strong, clear communication with our models & actors in order to prep for each individual audition & to satisfy each specific clients wants & needs!
