Our Story

PIVOT Agency was founded in 2013 as a full service sports marketing agency, built at the nexus of brands and culture, and forming alliances between consumer brands, athletes, sports, the arts, causes, business and media. Today it has grown into four (4) unique and successful divisions, encompassing Brand Representation, Property Sales, Team Travel and Tennis. By applying unparalleled expertise and data at precisely the right time and place, its team of industry leading executives have helped build PIVOT into a growing influence in the sports and entertainment business.

PIVOT recognizes the importance of corporate citizenship and giving back to those in need. In 2018, PIVOT created the PIVOT Foundation, whose signature event is an amateur tennis tournament designed to raise money for the Leukemia, Lymphoma Society (LLS) in memory of Ben Shapiro’s (CEO and Founder) late father.
