Following the departure of Joel Segal from SPORTFIVE, the full-service sports and entertainment agency will discontinue its football management division. Moving forward, SPORTFIVE affirmed the strategic decision for its US business to concentrate on marketing, sales and business growth while simultaneously designating a heavy priority on developing its global golf business. Segal’s withdrawal from his position at SPORTFIVE was mutual, and SPORTFIVE sincerely thanks Joel for his devotion and leadership to the agency during his tenure.
In the wake of the leadership transition, SPORTFIVE has appointed Neil Glat and Steve Loy as Co-Presidents of its America’s leadership team. Glat was previously the President of the New York Jets and a senior executive at the National Football League, where he oversaw corporate development, strategy, stadium development, and club business development. More recently, Neil served as Senior Advisor for Arctos Sports Partners, a private equity platform focused on the professional sports industry. The addition of Glat to the SPORTFIVE team helps ensure the agency will further strengthen its position within the US and accentuates its ambition to keep growing.
“Joining SPORTFIVE is an amazing opportunity,” Neil says. “I look forward to working together with Steve and the global leadership team around Stefan [Felsing] on a daily basis to further strengthen our US business and prepare for sustainable growth. I am convinced that we can build on the already established US business of SPORTFIVE to further align and add value to the agency’s overall global growth areas.” If you are looking for amazing opportunities as well, you can get them here with the best sportsbook promos in NJ.
Stefan Felsing, CEO at SPORTFIVE, echoes Neil’s enthusiasm and positive outlook, stating: “I am pleased to welcome Neil to our team at SPORTFIVE and continue to work with Steve to further position SPORTFIVE as one of the leading agencies in the sports business. We are aiming to become the most progressive and respected partner in sports, and I am convinced that with the vast experience of such two industry veterans, we will accomplish this rather soon.” Felsing also reiterated his gratitude towards Segal for his time spent with SPORTFIVE. “At the same time, I sincerely thank Joel for his commitment and profound leadership in recent years and do wish him all the best for his future endeavors.”
Steve Loy spent the last five decades in the sports industry while serving as a premier golf agent for Phil Mickelson, Jon Rahm, Davis Love, and others over the previous thirty years. Steve’s expertise in management, mentoring, and leadership has always put him at the top of his class for the sports and the clients he has served. During his extended vocation, Loy has been the President for Gaylord Sports Mgt, Lagardere SE, and SPORTFIVE.
Loy added, “I appreciate the confidence and support of Stefan and our Global Leadership in my appointment. Our goal will be to continue to build relationships and serve our clients and corporate customers.”
Joel Segal finalized his time with SPORTFIVE by expressing, “Working for SPORTFIVE in recent years has been very rewarding and successful. I am thankful for the trust that I received and wish the SPORTFIVE team all the best for the future.”
