JENNA QUALIZZA

FOUNDER / AGENT

A magazine-trained, fashion industry-loving entrepreneur became determined to influence the photography industry - by supporting artists that redefine it. It seemed a natural step as many of her friends would come to her again and again to help them make career strategies. Thus, opening Traction Artist Management in 2008. At Traction, she is a dedicated business owner and talent manager. She inherently believes in helping others, investing her loyalty and resources into every ounce of her artists and company. She is lifestyle and quality driven, bringing an innate passion to every relationship she builds and detail she touches. Her taste level remains inspiring, from her curiosity of Italian heritage, cooking, and horseback riding, to her collection of sky-high booties and global travel. Jenna splits her time in Dumbo, Brooklyn and Catskills, NY with her husband Ernesto, their two sons, Crosby & Hudson, and her blue Persian cat, Rupert.
