Nine9 – The “Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer” Of The Entertainment Industry

Listen to this article

Since 2003 Nine9 has been helping the undiscovered talent, models, actors and musicians get listed, receive castings, auditions and opportunities. They believe in creating professional and strong client-staff relationships to provide endless possibilities for career growth. Below is our interview with Anthony Toma, CEO & Founder of Nine9:

Anthony Toma

Q: Anthony , how would you describe Nine9 in your own words?

A: I would describe Nine9 as the “Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer” of the entertainment industry. People don’t understand what we do or what we can do for them, so they don’t let us play in their “Industry Games” but when they find out how much we do to make their lives easier, they welcome us with open arms. Nine9 is a triple threat. We help models and actors get started, we help casting directors, agencies and clients find qualified talent for their auditions and casting calls and lastly, we created a platform for Industry Professionals to showcase their workshops and allow them to give back to new upcoming models and actors.

Q: What advantage does Nine9 have over its competitors?

A: It’s clear that people starting out need more then just marketing tools to get where they want to be in the industry. Nine9’s advantage is that we have brick and mortar offices to meet with people face to face and offer a personal touch. We are there to help them get the most out of their membership. They can ask questions and get answers. Our competitors offer a similar service, but don’t have the personal interaction that Nine9 offers.

Q: You’ve recently announced opening of two new offices in Strongsville and Cherry Hill; tell us something more about your expansion plans.

A: Well first, we can say that we are very pleased to be able to touch the lives of aspiring models and actors in both the Strongsville (Cleveland, Ohio) and Cherry Hill (South Jersey, New Jersey) offices. The rest of the expansion plan is to open at least three more offices by the end of 2017, eight more in 2018 and then eight more in 2019. That would bring the office total to 29 total by the end of 2019. With that we are looking to add fun loving, caring people to join our sales and management team. Send resumes to

Q: What is the motto that guides Nine9’s decisions?

A: “If it helps the people, we will find a way to get it done”.

Q: What are your plans for the future?

A: The plan is to change the way the industry works. People are sick and tired of waiting around to be discovered or waiting for an agent or an agency to take them on and make the investment to develop them. People can develop and manage themselves. Don’t wait, visit to learn more.
