Australia’s Top Model Signs with CK Talent
Oliver Hughes, one of Australia’s Top Models, recently announced that he has signed with CK Talent Management for exclusive world-wide representation. Hughes chose the agency because of its founder, Craig Rogalski, who is known for vigorously representing his clients and protecting them within their respective industries. Hughes has said publicly, as a model he felt exploited and used by the industry and he chose Rogalski for his fearless representation of his clients.
“I heard about Rogalski through people in the industry, so my Mom and I checked him out. We learned that he was the real deal, when it comes to representing and protecting his clients.” Hughes’s mom has managed him for a while now but she as a mom could only do so much and Hughes has been very public regarding her struggles with her cancer diagnosis.
“My mom’s wish was for me to be in safe hands with someone she and my dad trusted, she determined it was Rogalski!” “We were able to eventually get in contact with him and after a couple weeks of talking to his team, we got a meeting with him. My mom and I spoke with him and he put us at ease and we knew from that point I had to sign with him.”
