Founder & CEO, TheRight.Fit, WINK Models
Taryn Williams is one of Australia’s most prolific entrepreneurs in the tech start-up and media industry.
Taryn is the CEO & Founder of The Right Fit, as well as Founder and CEO of WINK Models. With over fifteen years experience in the world of modelling, media and advertising, Taryn has proven herself to be a game changer and one not shy to press the disrupt button.
Launched in 2016, TheRight.Fit, is an online influencer and talent platform now used by major advertising agencies and brands to find the best and brightest talent for their jobs. Brands using the platform include Veuve Cliquot, Toyota, Menulog, LG and AAMI Insurance.
In 2007 with $30,000 in savings, Taryn launched her first business, WINK Models, a response to the inefficiencies in working conditions for models and the lack of flexibility and quality service offered to clients. Ten years later the agency has flourished into a national business with over 650 talent and turnover in the millions. In 2015 Anthill Online named the company in its Top 100 coolest Australian companies. While Taryn continues to oversee the WINK operation, her focus is firmly set on building The Right Fit into a global platform that will transform the creative industry and the talent that work within it. It has already attracted the interest of leading venture capital firm, Airtree Ventures, with a $750,000 seed-funding round in August 2016.
Taryn is a regular commentator on the tech industry, entrepreneurialism and business and sits on the Boards of Tech Sydney and the Digital + Technology Collective (formerly AIMIA).
Taryn has received numerous award accolades including being named a Finalist in the B&T Hot 30 under 30, B&T Women in media, SmartCompany 30 under 30, Australian Insititue of Management and Women’s Agenda Emerging Entrepreneur of the year.
