HOW 1VSE CAME TO BE...
1Vision Sports and Entertainment started as a dream between a pair of high school students at Sanford H. Calhoun High School in Merrick, New York. One of them would go to law school, working in sports and entertainment business along the way, while the other opted for the world of professional baseball after sticking it out to earn a finance degree as an undergrad.
That pair was Patrick Bedell and Jake Thomas, who would go on to build 1Vision Sports & Entertainment in the Summer and Fall of 2018 following Thomas' retirement from professional baseball. The company would officially launch on New Years day of 2019.
Their goal was simple but unique. Thanks to Patrick's experience in sports and entertainment law and Jake's firsthand accounts of what professional athletes go through when they navigate the process of making sports a career, they teamed up to provide clients a new and fresh take on the agent-client relationship. They developed a great understanding what was being done well in the field, and what areas could be improved upon.
Using this understanding along with their own personal backgrounds and perspectives, they have been able to assist clients of all different statures and backgrounds. With an emphasis on working with clients on a more focused and day-to-day level, their goal is to allow their clients to maximize their potential on the field or ice and off of it.
The message from the 1Vision team is simple: Our vision is your vision, every goal of yours becomes our goal as well and in the pursuance of this, we will work tirelessly to make the vision a reality for each and every client.
