George Gallier born in Paris France, is a pioneer of the modeling management industry, started what has become today's personal management standards for actors, models and athletes. George Gallier managed Prestige Model management in Paris France in 1982, discovered models such as Laurence Treil, Estelle Lefebure, Estella Warren, Vanessa Duve, Connie Nielsen, and many more. Several of these models careers were launched by the magazine Jill an avant-garde French fashion magazine partly owned by George Gallier in Paris. Photographers such as Peter Lindbergh, Hans Fuerer, Patrick Demarchelier, Peter Beard and many more shot for the magazine on a regular basis, fashion styling was covered by Babette Djian the co-founder and chief editor of Numero magazine. George Gallier moved to New York City in 1985 to start American Model Management a NY City boutique modeling agency. At the time, most modeling agencies were large mega interconnected and disconnected modeling networks spanning across the globe, the concept of American Model Management was to be involved in all aspects of the models careers, instead of merely following their steps. The success was immediate and global, starting a trend that is still on today, where all large talent agencies have offset boutique agencies or departments to launch and manage careers of actors, models and athletes. George Gallier is the former President and Chief Operating Officer of The Lions Models LLC, a New York City modeling agency established in 2012 by Ron Burkle from The Yucaipa Companies, LLC.
