Director of Player Marketing & Developmentmarco@xlsportsmanagement.com
The window of opportunity for NFL players is a small one - the average career is just 4 years - so it is vital that they move swiftly to reap the marketing revenue that is open to them. For many, the potential to add several hundred thousand dollars per year in earnings is a real possibility - potential that is greatly enhanced by the expert guidance and marketing savvy of XL Sports Management and company founder and president Marco Marciano.
Marco has been a leader in the field of professional sports marketing since the mid-1990s, when he took on Dennis Rodman as his first client and transformed the Bulls' "bad boy" into a marketing powerhouse, with endorsement contracts from Converse, Sony and Oakley as well as major movie roles and countless personal appearances.
From there, Marco turned his attention to the NFL, where he leveraged his proven success and singular talents into mutually-beneficial relationships with some of the biggest names in the game - from Tony Gonzalez and Junior Seau to Ricky Williams and Lance Briggs. In 2004, he expanded his horizons even further, merging his own firm with the prestigious Irene Marie Agency of South Beach (MTV's "8th and Ocean") and building the sports division into one of the most formidable forces in the sports marketing field.
Then in 2007, Marco parted ways with Irene Marie and set out on his own again, determined to build an entity whose vision and expertise would be second to none in the sports marketing arena. The result is XL Sports Management - a company uniquely equipped to produce the results the NFL's elite deserve!
