TGI Holdings Becomes Co-owner of Select Model Management

TGI Holdings, led by founder and investment principal Alfred Tagliaferro, has become a co-owner of Select Model Management, a global network of model and talent agencies around the world.

Tagliaferro has also been appointed to Select’s board of directors.

TGI Holdings becomes co-owner in partnership with existing majority shareholder Silva International, the investment company owned by sports and media investor Riccardo Silva. Silva is also the founder of Miami FC, the main shareholder of Glove Soccer and SportBusiness, and co-owner of AC Milan.

“We are thrilled to have invested in Select Model Management. Our investment is underpinned by the superb operational track record of Select’s employees and management team, who together have built the leading high-end brand within the global fashion modeling industry,” said Tagliaferro.

He said that the future of the industry “has never been more exciting, and Select’s unique position as the go-to agency for luxury fashion brand clients means it is well placed to continue its superb growth and expansion as experienced over the past few years.”

Talent agencies are seeing a lot of action lately. Earlier this month, François-Henri Pinault, whose family controls the Kering luxury empire, reached an agreement for a majority stake in Creative Artists Agency, adding Hollywood’s premier talent agent to his family empire.

Select, which was founded in 1977, has offices in London, Milan, Paris, Stockholm, Atlanta, Chicago, Los Angeles and Miami. In 2019, Select merged with MP Management, which at the time was the world’s fastest-growing global network of model and talent agencies.

“I am happy to witness that our long-term strategic position in the global fashion industry as the most inclusive network of boutique modeling agencies has the capability to attract such prestigious private investors. Our sustained growth in terms of revenue and profitability is the direct result of the highly nurtured and caring relationships we entertain with the incredible individuals we represent as models and artists,” said Matteo Puglisi, Select chief executive officer.

TGI Holdings is an investment holding company based in London and Sydney. It invests globally across public equities, operating businesses and credit.
