You may not be entirely familiar with PSE Management because, unlike most sports management firms/agents, we prefer and strive to work quietly, behind the scenes, to achieve the best results for our clients. We do not inject ourselves into the public eye to gain notoriety in order to recruit future clients. Rather, we emphasize the goals and values of clients in a manner that is consistent with their personalities and wishes. Our team is made up of six members who are available for you and your family 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. We are always just a phone call away.
