Malka Sports, a New Jersey based full-service agency, made headlines this week, announcing industry veteran, Ari Nissim, as its new COO. Nissim, the former Wisconsin University and Tulane Law School grad, has a myriad of experience in sports, including acting as a player agent, serving as Director of Football Administration for the New York Jets, and assisting in developing the Roc Nation Sports Football division.
Additionally, Nissim represented and assisted in brokering player contracts worth over $1 Billion (notably recognized for Todd Gurley’s record contract with the Los Angeles Rams).
Nissim is a home run hire, as he continues to broker deals with prospective NFL athletes and even entering the field of NIL. “Ari’s resume speaks for itself, and our clients will benefit from his experience on both sides of the negotiating table.” Pat Capra, CEO, said.
Malka Sports was founded in 2012 and is considered an evolutionary leader in digital and media content for their respected athletes and brands. Malka has collaborated with brands including Old Spice and Dunkin and produced a number of documentaries and full-video podcasts featuring the likes of Mike Tyson, Matt Barnes and Stephen Jackson.
