ESM’s in house full-service staff gives our clients greater access to a comprehensive marketing, public relations, and client services team, which in turn provides limitless business opportunities to our players both during and long after their playing days are over.
ATLANTA (PRWEB) May 13, 2019
Atlanta-based sports management agency, EnterSports Management (“ESM”) has acquired Charlotte, North Carolina based Premier Athlete Advisors to help grow an already profitable football division and to further expand its footprint deeper into the Carolinas and the Mid-Atlantic states.
Premier’s Founder and CEO Adam M. Seifer, who for more than a decade has represented NFL and NASCAR athletes, along with entertainers such as WWE Superstars and musicians, has been named Vice President of Football Operations for ESM. In addition to football, ESM has a burgeoning baseball division based out of Southern Florida that includes Astros All-Star Pitcher Will Harris and Twins star Outfielder Eddie Rosario. EnterSports President, Hadley Engelhard, has been representing athletes for almost 30 years and also has an entertainment background, having worked with Atlanta hip-hop mogul Jermaine Dupri in establishing a sports division at So So Def.
“The synergies between our companies were too strong to ignore. Hadley, Jim and I share the same vision in terms of what it means to truly service the client and provide one stop shopping for all of the player’s career and post-career needs. Ultimately, it came down to trust, which is of utmost importance in any business relationship. This really wasn’t a hard decision,” Seifer said.
Acquiring Premier will give the combined agency additional resources to service their existing football clients, which now numbers in excess of 30 active NFL clients, and to service future ones, as they look towards further expansion. Seifer elaborated, “ESM’s in house full-service staff gives our clients greater access to a comprehensive marketing, public relations, and client services team, which in turn provides limitless business opportunities to our players both during and long after their playing days are over.”
Founded in the early 1990s, ESM’s client roster includes multiple Pro Bowlers, future Hall of Famer Robert Mathis, as well as Super Bowl star Trey Burton. In addition to representing more than a dozen 1st round draft picks over the years, including recent 1st round pick Hayden Hurst, ESM has negotiated some of the richest NFL contracts in league history, making their players some of the highest paid at their respective positions.
“We are very excited to welcome Adam to the ESM Family,” Engelhard said. “Adam’s experience and passion will make him a great asset to the company and we look forward to building upon our success with him.”
