According to Liz Mullen, NFL agents Kristen Kuliga and Joby Branion are joining forces. Kuliga’s company, K Sports & Entertainment, will be folded into the three year old agency founded by Branion.
While Kuliga has made a name for herself representing NFL players such as former quarterback Doug Flutie (and his $33 million deal with the Chargers in 2001), Colts defensive tackle T.Y. McGill, Jets punter Ross Martin and Raiders rookie offensive tackle Jylan Ware among other clients. She has continued to represent Flutie’s business career while also developing a marketing, consulting and event management for corporate clients. For these corporate clients, Kuliga provides project-based marketing, event management, corporate hospitality and other business development services.
When joining Vanguard, Kuliga will serve as the director of business development. She will focus on business development for corporate clients while also continuing to represent NFL players.
Founded in 2014 by Joby Branion, an industry veteran having spent 10 years at Athletes First, Vanguard Sports Group represents more than 25 NFL clients including Broncos linebacker Von Miller, and Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen.
