TG Team

Brian Boden

Brian Side by Side

Brian graduated in 1980 with a Bachelor of Science in Business degree from Indiana University - Bloomington. He brings more than thirty-five years of widely varied industry experience to talent management.


At nineteen, Brian began working as an on-camera and print talent in the Midwestern, Southeastern and Southwestern markets. Simultaneously, he worked as an ad agency copywriter; then, as a corporate script writer/spokesperson; and ultimately, as an independent writer/producer/director.


In 1987, Brian settled in Chicago where he launched his production company, BodenWorks, LTD. In 1990, he became a partner and director of operations for Talent Group. And, in 1997, he assumed sole ownership of the agency and incorporated it as Talent Group, Inc.


In his pastime, Brian enjoys running, traveling, spending time with family and friends, and training his rescue Pekes, Chloe & Spencer, to be vigilant office mascots.

Jaimese Lewis
Senior Talent Manager

Jaimese Side by Side 2

Jaimese graduated in 2006 from Illinois State University with a BFA degree in Directing (Concentration in Acting).

As a 2005 TG intern, Jaimese “paid her dues” making copies, taking out trash, and performing other mundane intern duties.  Brian clearly saw the amazing potential and intuitive know-how that this self-proclaimed “genius” possessed and offered her a full time job in October 2006.  And, the rest is history as they say.

It didn’t take long for Jaimese to establish herself as a shining star talent representative, earning her way to Senior Talent Manager and the distinct honor of being the longest tenured TG rep in the history of the company.  This year, Jaimese celebrates her 12-year anniversary (she’s still waiting for her parade *cough cough*).

A self-proclaimed “workaholic,” when she’s not at her desk, Jaimese is enjoying good food, good company, followed by a good nap (after hours, of course).

These days, I let my assistant do the dirty work. But, come on people…you know I’m the one who truly runs the show around here. 

Now, if you’ll excuse me, craft services is calling for me.

I’ve learned to love the spotlight after so many years as an understudy. Trust me, I can deliver a dramatic performance when that door buzzer rings.

What can I say? I’m a method actor.
