HLA Management is a Sydney based theatrical agency representing artists across the entertainment industry spectrum.

Our team is dedicated to the personal management of writers, directors, designers, heads of department, composers, choreographers and presenters.

The Company had its genesis in 1973, launched as Hilary Linstead & Associates, and was the first agency in Australia to represent writers, directors and designers. In the early nineties, Kate Richter purchased the Company and the Agency was rebranded as HLA Management. Maintaining the tradition of long-term personal management lies at the heart of our business practice, representing several clients for close to 50 years.

HLA Management prides itself on providing the highest level of service and support to our clients. Our team is passionate, dedicated and focused on open communication. Building trust, respect and positive relationships within the industry, is the core of our business practice.

The agency continues to welcome new, exciting, emerging and powerful voices to our client list as we continue to support diversity and the inclusion of marginalised voices within the entertainment industry.

It is our firm belief that the arts make a difference to us all and to our society.
