John Mahoney Management was founded back in the 1960s by the late and much lamented John Mahoney. Our agency's client base consists of actors who work in theatre, television, film, musical theatre and radio; we do not represent the noble art of extra or walk-on work. Derek (Bo) Keller joined the agency in 1985 followed by Fred Bannon, who passed away suddenly in 2000. Stephen Holroyd, who has been associated with the theatre side of the agency for many years, joined the team on a permanent basis in 2007 and Alan Kite, with a background in arts and theatre administration, joined in 2008; both have become partners in the business alongside Bo.

For over fifty years our agency has remained at the forefront of a profession that has changed at an incredible speed and continually strives to create new employment possibilities for our family of actors. Our reputation has been sustained over many years, by delivering reliable artists, whose skills most closely fit the requirements of casting briefs that we are sent, together with the professional conduct of our clients and regular communication with both artists and casting directors alike.

Our agency is founded on a policy of quality, not quantity, and endeavours to maintain the highest professional standards at all times. We aim to meet casting briefs accurately and only suggest more than one of our clients for a specific role if the brief is very open. Representation is a very important role for us and to maintain a quality service to our clients, we do not duplicate actors of the same gender, age and skills. We believe in loyalty; from us to our clients (some of whom have been with us for over forty years) and equally from our clients to us.

This industry is all about making good impressions and useful contacts; we treat performing arts as a business and it is important for our clients to be able to do the same. Each client is schooled by us to enable them to play their part in the communication process. Everyone in our office has come from a background in performance, the theatre and arts administration and therefore appreciates the hardships of this profession. We like to keep the agency as much like a family as possible: always remembering that your good fortune is our good fortune too.
