The definition of the word symmetry is, “The quality of being made up of exactly similar parts facing each other or around an axis.” In choosing the name of his new sports agency, Mook Williams focused on the “exactly similar parts” facing around an “axis” concept. For his agency, named Symmetry, the axis is the client; the parts are the executive members of the new company.
Mook Williams is the President of Symmetry. Williams, an attorney, was formerly with National Sports Management, which lists JR Rickert as a Co-Owner and President of the company, but Rickert also has his own separate team, which includes Peter Schaffer, who also has his own agency…it’s all a bit confusing. Anyway, Williams has officially broken off from the National Sports Management “team” to start his own firm. Joining him will be Brian McLaughlin as Vice President, who also used to work at National Sports Management. “It’s an amazing feeling to be able to put your fingerprint on your own business,” said McLaughlin. “At Symmetry, we are looking to stand out for all the right reasons in an industry that doesn’t always operate at the highest standard.”
Day-to-day, Williams and McLaughlin will be running the show at Symmetry; however, the other members of the company include successful businessmen John Cofran and Bobby Urs and veteran New York City attorneys Graig Martin and Peter Martin.
Symmetry will immediately have offices in Boston (headquarters) and New York City. And the company will immediately have its first client. Symmetry has already signed and begun training Buffalo WR Marcus Rivers. He is a 6’4 WR who ran an official 4.54 at his spring testing day, and accumulated 110 total catches combined during his final two seasons at Buffalo. Some of the clients who Mook and Brian worked with at National Sports Management will be also be moving with them to Symmetry, but they have yet to be identified.
As for the future of Symmetry, Williams stated the following, “Our focus for the forseeable future is football only. However, we will remain open-minded to partnering with other ethical agents from other sports who might want to develop a division under the Symmetry umbrella. I personally plan to only ever be involved with the day to day operations of one sport – football.”
The Symmetry website is still being developed and will launch before the end of the calendar year. When it does launch, it will be located at http://www.SymmetryReps.com. However, However, Symmetry does have an operating Facebook page and Twitter account (@SymmetryReps).
