MEET THE TEAM

Jacqueline Hazen-Levine

The owner and President of CFT, Jacqueline Hazen-Levine, began her career as a model for the agency, where she found success in print, conventions, music videos, and runway shows. She has worked with brand names that include Tommy Hilfiger, DKNY, and GUESS, not only as a model but also as a fashion coordinator.

While modeling, Jacqueline also pursued other aspects of the industry, including production, advertisement, and castings in order to increase her knowledge of the entertainment business. Her work allowed her opportunities in LA, AZ, Miami, and NY.

Jacqueline soon discovered her love for helping dedicated actors and models achieve their goals and dreams. Her experience has allowed for a better understanding the needs of the talent as well as the client. Sharing a similar vision, former President, Arianne Pemberton, came together with Jacqueline to develop new, innovative ways for working together to cross promote talent in all markets across the nation. When the opportunity arose for full time expansion into the LA market Arianne decided to take on the challenge and open an agency in Los Angeles for the greater good of her talent. Since the transition from agent to owner in 2005, Jacqueline Hazen has been focused on continuing the invaluable established reputation of the agency.

Jacqueline's fresh team of agents, whose energy and expertise in the areas of Commercial, Film, TV, Print and Tradeshows, qualify CFT as one of the leading talent agencies in Florida.
