No Nightmare Clients this week.Â Hooray!Â So here is an Agent Spotlight in the weekly column’s place:Â
Kevin Poston, President and CEO of Professional Sports Planning (PSP), and his brother are interested in making their agency a “way of life.” With a long list of top NFL players and a couple of NBA clients (including Michael Redd), PSP is one of the leaders in the Sports Agent industry.
Kevin Poston’s educational background includes earning a Juris Doctor degree from Thurgood Marshall School of Law @ Texas Southern University and a business degree from Fisk University in Nashville, Tenn.
He has had as many as 50 clients in a specific calendar year, and last year alone, negotiated contracts for his clients totaling $190 million [Sports agent talks about his trade].
This is my favorite quote from the Grand Rapids Press article:
“You can be the smartest guy in the world, but if you can’t talk to someone, it’s not going to work. Can you talk to the top athletes and will he listen?” – Kevin Poston
