Lee Sutherland is Founder + Director of frankie+jet, and wears all the hats - Talent Agent, Publicist + Brand Manager (and a damn good one at that). But working for Australia's longest standing talent management agency (HMMG, formerly Harry M Miller Group) isn't where the skills end to make her one of the most well rounded agents out there. She also knows influencer marketing and digital strategy from the eyes of an influencer, as well as the ins and outs of owning a product-based business.
Lee worked in Marketing then PR for the worlds largest record label UNIVERSAL MUSIC for 5 years managing the PR for clients ranging from The Presets to Kayne West. In 2011 Lee joined the HMMG as an Agent + Manager and managed the careers of clients including Ryan Fitzgerald, Zoe Bingley-Pullin, Lola Berry, Elka Whalan and Danny Clayton to name a few.

This tenure at HMMG is where Lee Sutherland and Hayley van Spanje met. Under the leadership and mentorship of legendary agent, Lauren Miller, Lee and Hayley were taught the foundation of operations for the Client Management business. This training, combined with their new school attitude for PR + social media strategy set the foundations for two hard working girlbosses.
Hayley van Spanje worked at HMMG for 7 years beginning as an intern whilst completing her Bachelor of Commerce (major: Public Relations), and progressing through the agency to Senior Agent. Her time in the agency saw her manage an extensive portfolio of talent, serving their media partnerships, strategic development, licensing deals and overall career objectives for clients including Peter Morrissey, Andrew Winter, Osher Günsberg, Tara Moss, Danny Clayton, Phil Scott and Richie Vas.
From managing the multi-million dollar licensing deal between fashion icon Peter Morrissey and Australian retail giant Big W, securing dozens of brand ambassador roles and hundreds of speaking appearances on behalf of clients - Hayley has extensive experience in talent management. Her passion for television led her to work with some of Australia's most recognisable network talent, network executives and production companies.
From 2016-2018 she produced The Osher Günsberg Podcast - securing guests, managing publicity, securing sponsors and managing its distribution across Qantas In-Flight entertainment and various Podcasting networks.
