Geoff Stanton

Co-founder of Stanton Davidson Associates (SDA) 2014 – Geoff had 25 years prior experience as a senior agent at Brunskill Management with the late and much missed Aude Powell, looking after a client list with major leading credits in film, television, West End theatre and on Broadway. Formerly a professional musician, commercial record producer, dance band leader/MD and orchestrator. Driven by a passion for theatre and huge admiration for actors and their craft, Geoff’s first real exposure to the business was in his early twenties, through playing in pit orchestras at various theatres, where he spent most of his spare time in the dressing rooms chatting with actors and hearing all their tales and woes, as opposed to frequenting the nearest pub with the rest of the band! It heralded a love affair that has burgeoned and flourished for well over 30 years.

Roger Davidson

Co-founder of Stanton Davidson Associates (SDA) 2014 - Roger trained as an actor and on graduating, worked for a decade and a half as such in theatre, television and film, including several stints with the National Theatre, new works at Hampstead, The Bush and widely in regional theatre, and on mainstream television, including leading roles in premieres of new work on the iconic Play for Today and Play of the Month series for BBC. Changing tack, he then worked for over a decade as an in-house casting director, first with Anglia, then Yorkshire Television as part of the ITV network, then as permanent in-house casting director on the long-running police series The Bill. Moving into the world of Artist’s Representation he was lucky to have learnt the ropes from two legendary figures in the agency world, first with Meg Poole at The Richard Stone Partnership then subsequently with the late Aude Powell at Brunskill Management. Aude’s passing in February 2014 prompted he and colleague Geoff Stanton to set up in partnership as Stanton Davidson Associates (SDA).

Jamie Rowlands

Jamie trained as an actor before making the move into talent management. He started his career at esteemed agency Brown, Simcocks & Andrews, where he spent four happy years as the assistant to lead agent Kelly Andrews. He joined Beresford Management in 2020 as lead agent, where he oversaw the entire client list and successfully shepherded the agency through the rocky waters of the Covid-19 pandemic. In November 2022, ready and eager to begin a new chapter, he was delighted to join Geoff and Roger at Stanton Davidson Associates (SDA) as Associate Agent.
