SBX Group
ABOUT

OUR FIRM

Our Story:

In 2013, SBX Group was founded by sport and entertainment executives David Dube and Danny Fritz. Their vision: to create a mid-sized agency with personalized, large-firm services. By 2014, Chief Strategy Officer David Corelli had realized this goal by spearheading our evolution from a talent and events firm to a full-service agency.

 

Six years later, with satellite offices in New York and Los Angeles in addition to our North American headquarters in Miami and Toronto, we have grown into a global entity while maintaining our core founding idea of providing a personalized service to all of our clients.

 

Today, SBX is a sports, entertainment and lifestyle marketing agency. We are a full-service firm representing the careers of professional athletes and entertainment personalities, while also consulting for brands and owning & operating event properties.

 

Our Brand:

SBX, short for our founding name, SportBox, meaning: street smarts + business smarts combined with a firm of individuals who want to propel forward, be disruptive and believe in innovation.

 

  • S: Street Smarts — The knowledge you can only gain by being there and understanding it.
  • B: Business — The expertise to analyze, strategize and execute.
  • X: Forward — The factor that drives the biggest impact on the outcome.

 

We are Sports. We are Entertainment. We are Lifestyle. #WeAreSBX
