FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
SOCCER, GOLF, RACING TALENT AGENCIES MERGE TO FORM PROSPORT MANAGEMENT (Dec. 18, 2018) – Four of the top talent management agencies across the professional global sports of soccer, golf, and racing have officially merged to form PROSPORT Management. This merger brings together a client list of athletes in top soccer leagues and various national teams from all over the world, a two-time Masters champion, a U.S. Open champion and three Daytona 500 winners.
The move combines golf agent Jens Beck of PROSPORT Management, racing agent Rod Moskowitz, formerly of FUEL Sports Management Group, and soccer agents Mike Gartlan, formerly of COR Sports Management Group, and Oskar Olsen, formerly of Onfield Management. The new organization will keep its current offices in Scottsdale, Ariz., Charlotte, N.C., Southern California and Mexico City.
“Our main priority has always been to help our clients maximize their potential,” said Jens Beck, a principal in the new PROSPORT Management organization. “By bringing these agencies together, we create better scale for our clients especially when it comes to sponsorships and other marketing opportunities.”
Highlighting PROSPORT’s client list are PGA Tour star Bubba Watson, NASCAR stars Chase Elliott and Denny Hamlin and MLS and International soccer players Walker Zimmerman and Erik Palmer-Brown.
“Our goal is to be considered an elite and distinctive sports management agency,” said Oskar Olsen, a PROSPORT principal and co-head of the soccer business. “This merger gives us unique access to an unbelievable group of talented and experienced people who will provide even more tools and guidance for our all of our clients.”
The golf roster of Watson, Geoff Ogilvy, Kevin Na, and Aaron Baddeley, has earned 26 PGA Tour career wins, including two Masters and a U.S. Open title. The racing roster of Hamlin, Elliott, Matt Kenseth, Jamie McMurray, Bubba Wallace and Brett Moffitt have accumulated 157 career NASCAR national series wins, including three Daytona 500 victories, one NASCAR Cup Series championship and one NASCAR Truck Series championship. Soccer clients, Justin Meram, Ola Kamara, Fanendo Adi, Christian Ramirez, Jorge Villafaña and multiple others on the roster, have won a combined five MLS Championships, four Supporter’s Shields and have multiple caps on various national teams.
“With the new organization, we will continue to be a nimble, quick-moving organization with a focus on service,” said Mike Gartlan, a PROSPORT principal and co-head of the soccer business. “We believe elite athletes deserve and demand a company that can provide the level of service and performance their talents require.”
Although the companies have been in partnership for several years and have worked together in various capacities, there was never a formal agreement. The principals realize they can do more for their clients together than as separate entities.
“We’re working with, and targeting, high-performing, highly-marketable athletes who don’t want to get lost in a huge roster of clients,” said Rod Moskowitz, a principal in PROSPORT Management and head of racing. “By bringing these agencies together, we are growing our resources and providing more value for our clients.”
