I was born in Latina, Italy in November 1970. When I was just 15 years old, I wrote an article from my small town, sent it by standard mail to a national basketball weekly magazine where it was published. This began my career as a sports journalist. At the age 17 I came up with the idea of asking Pat Riley for his past season’s playbook. When the coach of Lakers’ dinasty sent a big envelop everybody was astonished.
In 2000, after reporting on all types of Italian and European Championships, I quit journalism and started working as players agent. Only three months later I recruited a young Slovenian potential star, who after a serious injury had a temporary contract of 6.000 usd per month.
When Player asked me if I believed he could become a million dollar player, my answer was an emphatic yes. 18 months later, this Player had a contract worth over one million in his hands. In 2011 I was one of the three co-founder of “3 Men Management”, a top Italian agency whose accomplishments include having 6 Players in Italian National Team. In 2012 I joined Bda (BDA Sports International homepage).
In 2015 I found MVP (“Marco Valenza & Partners”). In season 2019/2020 I sign contracts worth of 4.1 million euro.
My motto comes from the quote “Nothing is impossible, the word itself says ‘I’m possible’”. Nothing is impossible if you trust and work hard. In 16 years I sign contracts in every Italian category, and also in Spain, France, Germany, Slovenia, Croatia, Greece, Turkey, Poland, Ungary, Russia, Cyprus, United States, Argentina. Thousands of contarcts, thousand of hours on the phone, million of kilometers, uncountable results shared with players and players’ families.
And the best is yet to come….
