I did an analysis of the company 8 years ago--in anticipation of a merger. Dieter and Brad were in charge (Dieter was good). A guy named Bobby Kreusler was the big dog in waiting. He was really moving into the sports area fast--had Matt Kuchar the year Matt was high amateur at the Masters. He was building an athlete based representation.
But, my analysis was that Sean Patterson was a star on the rise. He was smart, aggressive, charming and he seemed to be always at work.
Bobby left. Dieter sold the company, but Sean was still there--the rock. Sean advanced very fast.
I personally like and respect Sean quite a lot. Put your money on him and you will not lose.
