Kult Australia opened the doors to its Sydney offices in 2016 as the most recent addition to Marco Cordes’ Kult Group. Dating back to its formative years in 2001 in Germany, Kult has demonstrated an eye for cultivating top male talent poised for sophisticated, global clientele. This recognition enabled the brand to establish a foothold in Europe, further its network into South Africa and eventually launch in Australia under the directorship of David Conway.
David has a ten year track record in both London and Sydney-based roles identifying talent, understanding the unique attributes of each of his models and developing longstanding careers. David has established himself as one of the industry’s leading authorities in model management representing the best in the business, with names including Simon Nessman, Tony Ward, Andre Van Noord, Andres Velencoso Segura, Francisco Lachowski, Harvey Newton-Haydon and breakthrough stars Nathaniel Visser, Julian Schneyder, Jacob Hankin and Kit Butler. Kult Models are constantly featured in leading campaigns for Calvin Klein, Gucci, Valentino, Bottega Venetta, Versace, Dior, Louis Vuitton and Givenchy, to name just a few, and can also been seen in major publications for Vogue, GQ, Dazed, i-D, Numéro, 10, L’Officiel and W.
In 2017, Kult Australia saw additional potential for the Kult brand to foster female talent and expand its offering to its clients. Lizzi Leighton-Clark joined the Group with 15 years of scouting, development and model management experience and is Director of Kult Women.
Together, David, Lizzi and team continue the sixteen year legacy of the Kult Group, providing our talent and clients a boutique approach to Australian model management as part of a formidable global group of agencies.
