Annie was born to Swiss parents and spent her child-hood between Switzerland and the UK. Annie founded Arlington in 1975 originally to represent actors but then saw a gap in the market and made the very successful move over to representing lifestyle television presenters. Annie is married and loves travelling to new places and spending time with her ever expanding family who are now spread all over the world from the mountains of Switzerland to the sunnier shores of North Africa. She has a passion for theatre and opera which stem from her career as an actress, and a flare for interior design. Her acting claim to fame was playing the part of Imogen in the Forsyth Saga.
With over 15 years of experience Hilary is at the top of her game. She was made a Director of Arlington in 2010 and manages a number of our highest profile clients. Hilary has an amazing list of contacts and is hugely respected by her clients and the industry alike. She enjoys the challenge of breaking in new talent and developing brand relationships with her fabulous clients!
Jennifer has been with Arlington since 2009, working directly with existing talent and more recently from 2010, with new talent. She previously spent 9 years working in various roles within Channel 5 Broadcasting, mainly in Press and Marketing which allowed her to gain a huge amount of industry knowledge and experience. Passionate about television from a young age, Jennifer attended Italia Conte performing arts school before beginning her journey into the world of media.
Debbie learnt her trade launching the successful careers of Charlie Dimmock and Tommy Walsh. In the15 years since then, she has gained a wealth of experience and both launched and sustained the careers of many other household names.
Her excellent rapport with her clients, and knack of negotiating a good deal for all involved (particularly over a relaxed drink or two!), ensure her continued popularity and respect as an agent.
Fiona joined Arlington in 2005 and quickly built up great relationships with both her clients and key figures in the industry. She manages the lives of a number of the agency's most established clients and has also successfully launched the television careers of some of our newer talent. With a passion for finding new faces Fiona is always on the look out for the next big name - her no nonsense, direct approach is widely appreciated by her colleagues and clients alike. Her current clients describe her as being "dependable, honest and fun".
Rachael joined Arlington as the office Manager in September 2010 after working 11 years at Channel 5. Rachael feels very privileged working in TV land as her first job was working in a bank! She loves nothing more than dancing round the living room with her 2 year old daughter.
