Brian Boden

Brian Boden 1

In 1987, Brian settled in Chicago where he launched his production company, BodenWorks, LTD. Then, in 1990, he became a partner and director of operations of Talent Group. 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 Lewis 1

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 they history.

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 13th anniversary with TG. And, she says 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).


Angel Guardian

I dedicated 13 years to my work at TG. And, I would have loved to continue, but God had other plans for me. I received my angel wings unexpectedly on 11-26-19. But don’t worry...I will not forget my TG friends. I will continue to watch over you from my above.

Love always, Chloe.

Senior Guard Dog


I’ve learned to love the spotlight after so many years as an understudy. Chloe has taught me all the ropes. She was my best friend and mentor. 

Trust me, I can deliver a dramatic performance when I need to bring it. 

What can I say? I’m a method actor.
