Mr. Stanson purchased the Paul Wagner talent and model agency – then the largest male model agency in New York.  He soon merged it with Modes and Models – the third largest woman’s model and talent operation in the city, and founded BOOKINGS INTERNATIONAL – the first superstar international talent and model agency in the world, with offices in New York, Paris, Rome, and London.

The Paris office was the base of Mr. Johnny Casablancas, who later founded the famous Elite Model Agency.  Mr. Stanson, with major restraints on his time, gifted the company to the models and bookers who were truly responsible for its success.
