FORT LAUDERDALE, FLA. — Adult talent management firm Alternative Modeling announced today a reorganization within the company and a downsizing of its Florida offices.

The company moved out of its 4,000-square-foot office and webcam studio due to what owner Eli Thomas is calling a restructuring “to accommodate the current industry climate.”

Thomas cited a recent office robbery as contributing to the move as well.

“What’s happening in the industry now is not the usual summer slowdown,” Thomas told XBIZ. “This is the slowest period we’ve had since we started our business seven years ago.”

The firm introduced two new models available for immediate bookings — veteran performer Mason Storm and newcomer Brittany.

“It’s great to have Mason back, she’s a great asset to have on our roster and Brittany is going to do great in the Florida market,” Thomas said.

The company added that despite the recent market downturn businesses would be wise to take advantage of this time to become “lean and mean.”

“We are more focused now on profits and acting more efficiently. We might have to make an extra 20 phone calls a day, but it does make a difference for the company,” Thomas told XBIZ.

Alternative Modeling was founded six years ago by Thomas and works with a number of key decisionmakers in the adult industry’s magazine, website, DVD, cable and hotel/motel pay-per-view genres while working to recruit new talent.

The company will continue to maintain its Studio City, Calif., office.
