Chicago native Emily Senko is living proof that good management is the key to a successful modeling career. Signed with Ford Models back in 2008, the 23-year-old (God bless her for being older than 14) was originally pigeonholed into the commercial side of the industry. That was until famed model agent Paul Rowland came aboard Ford’s image division in spring 2010, eventually overseeing Senko’s career. It didn’t take long for Rowland to prove Senko’s appeal to high-fashion clients, and soon enough, she was on the runways for Chanel, Alexander Wang, Louis Vuitton, and Lanvin. She currently shares the spring BCBG Max Azria campaign with Fabiana Mayer. A job well done, to both Paul and Emily.
