Meet Lisa Benson (IES Abroad London, Spring 2001), Vice President of IMG Models. Knowing she wanted to pursue a career in the fashion industry, Lisa visited Milan and other cities while studying abroad in London, soaking in all these fashion capitals had to offer. Back in New York City, Lisa went from working as a receptionist at IMG to managing top talent such as Chrissy Teigen, Lily Aldridge, Elsa Hosk, Shanina Shaik, Hilary Rhoda, and Nadine Leopold.
