Washington, DC (PRWEB) May 13, 2014
No rest for the weary! Recently retired baseball player and new broadcaster for the Dodgers Network, Jerry Hairston, Jr. is no stranger to the super-utility role. However, not many saw his most recent partnership coming with Sports Management and Marketing Company, Culture Thirty-Nine.
“I know first-hand the opportunities for the baseball market that have gone unexplored and underdeveloped. Partnering with Culture Thirty-Nine, and most importantly my cousin, Charles, allows me to play a mentor role for clients,” said Jerry. “I am also excited to work with the firm's advisors on the right way to be managed as a professional baseball player; as I was throughout my career. Plus, there is the added bonus of watching our family pursue new roles in the sport that has been so good to our family, and still is today.”
Culture Thirty-Nine currently has signed its first player, Daniel Carbonell, a Cuban CF, who recently turned 23. Hairston went on to say, “I mean, we know baseball, so when my cousin said what we had in 'Carbo' it was a sign.” Carbonell has drawn significant interest from a number of teams as he was officially cleared by OFAC late last week and is expecting to sign a MLB contract any day now.
Culture Thirty-Nine CEO Charles Hairston said, “With our clients we always talk about timing. And, everything has come together at the right time for this company." He went on to say "Jerry and I have worked together going on five years now and I think we always approach each as other as we do our clients -- and that is a family-first attitude. And, when the Hairston family is involved everyone knows you will always get a max effort, along with respect and integrity for the game. We feel good about how the future looks, but like Jerry always says 'Don't just talk about it. Be about it'."
Aside from the signing of Carbonell, they have teamed with well-respected attorneys Jeff Fannell for contract negotiations, and Jeffrey M. Smith of GreenbergTraurig for a variety of services. COO of Culture Thirty-Nine, Kevin Berry, discussed these moves, "we really wanted to surround the organization with a solid foundation. This way Charles, Jerry, Ariel (Nunez), and the rest of our team can operate in confidence. And, although our plan is to stay boutique-minded, these partnerships allow us to scale as well."
Culture Thirty-Nine is based out of Washington, DC with an additional location in Mexico. Its mission is to fill the void in the career paths of its clients by helping surpass their goals both on and off the field. So far Culture Thirty-Nine is doing just that.
