Agent Spotlights

Agent Spotlight: Jordan Bazant

Jordan BazantWhile some kickers end up writing books, few end up becoming successful sports agents. Jordan Bazant will read that statement and laugh, because even though he never actually kicked a ball professionally and played for a pretty lousy SEC football team (Vanderbilt), the former kicker currently represents some of the top names in sports. After graduating from Vanderbilt, Bazant enrolled at University of Miami Law School but never ended up getting his J.D. He was plucked by Integrated Sports International (ISI), which was later bought by SFX Sports…now owned by Blue Equity.

Bazant eventually left ISI to create his own agency: Goal Marketing, LLC. He is also a founder and principal of The Agency Sports Management. At The Agency, Jordan Bazant continues to play a large role in the development of Starbury’s sneaks.
