AMAX owner and director Cherylann Stephens has been in the business since 1984. After positions as director at Next and Wilhelmina in Los Angeles, she opened AMAX’s parent company, Maximum Artist Creative Services, in 2005 to fill the need for an artists agency in the Nashville market. In 2009 MACS acquired AMAX, a well known Nashville Modeling agency founded in 1989 and has built the company to the industry leader that it is today.
Ginny Edwards Maxwell joined AMAX in 2012 and has been a scout and mother agent for over 20 years. Ginny is in charge of scouting and developing models, placement with international agencies, and overall career management of the high fashion talent who have gone on to front the covers of Vogue and Sports Illustrated and star in campaigns for Chanel, Levi’s, Marc Jacobs, Celine, Gap and countless others.
Kayla Borg, the primary booker for models and talent; Bria Stone, the booker for the artist/creative division, which includes hair, makeup, styling, props, and manicurists; and Becca Chaney, the junior booker for models and talent will also share their industry pointers.
