GiGi Savoca

NEW FACES DIRECTOR

It is my pleasure to work with NV Models & Talent in the New Faces Division. I have scouted, developed and marketed talent since 1983. I have been called a frontier woman in this industry as a result of pushing for the best talent and clients, knowing that is what makes a good Agency. NV Models & Talent has had the same beliefs as I do when it comes to handling New Faces and preparing them for the future. Having been a part of this Agency since 2012, I know this is where I belong as long as the journey takes me.
