Toby Tao | Founder
Divine Model Agency was founded in 2012 by entrepreneur Toby Tao. Having gained some industry experience working for a boutique talent agency during her time as a student at City University, Toby was inspired to set up her own agency to help people get into the world of modelling, as well as follow her passion into this glamourous industry.
Despite limited experience running her own business, the then 21-year-old Toby persevered through the difficulties of building a business from the ground up, and within a short space of time she gained valuable clients and added top quality talents to her roster.
With over a thousand talents on her books and an increasingly growing client list of large organizations in Hong Kong and Macau regions, Toby is exploring new possibilities with potential clients in the Mainland China market in the near future.
Aside from Divine Model Agency, Toby is also an investor in the French style cake shop chain Tartes & pop, which currently has 2 shops in Hong Kong and a consignment at Hong Kong International Airport. With more shops set to open in the near future, Toby looks to make her mark on the food industry as well, and by using the same work ethic as she did when developing Divine Model Agency during its inception, she will no doubt succeed.
