Milk & Honey Management has rebranded as Milk & Honey Music + Sports + Ventures and launches immediately with 15 NFL players.
With the addition of the sports division, Milk & Honey adds a new vertical on the back of the company’s successful music department, which represents some of the biggest songwriter, producer and artist talent in the music industry.
The Milk & Honey sports division will be run by veteran agent Jacob Presser who will lead the division on the partner level bringing with him clients such as Courtland Sutton (Denver Broncos,) Damien Wilson (Kansas City Chiefs,) Xavier Jones (Los Angeles Rams,) Damiere Byrd (New England Patriots,) Kamren Curl (Washington Football Team) and James Proche (Baltimore Ravens) not to mention other players on the Buffalo Bills, the Green Bay Packers, and the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Alongside Presser on the partner level will be Rawleigh Williams, who brings with him strong player knowledge and an extensive football background.
The new company has plans for expansion into the wider world of sports including basketball, baseball, hockey, golf, soccer and beyond but the company’s immediate focus will be on the NFL.
Dave Frank and Alex Harrow, co-heads of artist management at Milk & Honey will be overseeing the new sports department at the firm.
The division will be run out of the company’s New York and Los Angeles offices with the addition of a Dallas presence to support the company’s relationships with universities and NCAA Division 1 programs in the south.
Milk & Honey also has physical offices in Nashville, London and Amsterdam.
