Prodigy Sports Acquires Ascension Sports Partners

FREEHOLD, NJ, September 18, 2017 – Prodigy Sports, one of North America’s leading preeminent executive recruitment firms solely dedicated to the multi-billion-dollar business of sports, today announced the acquisition of Ascension Sports Partners, a boutique search firm led by veteran Dan Rossetti. Rossetti, who has led Ascension for nearly 10 years, will assume the role of President of Prodigy Sports.

“As Prodigy Sports celebrates our 10thanniversary in 2017, we’ve continually explored ways to bolster our business and broaden our reach within the recruiting industry,” Prodigy Sports’ Founder and Chief Executive Officer Scott Carmichael said.  “By acquiring Dan Rossetti’s Ascension Sports Partners firm and folding his successful boutique practice and deep client base into our growing agency, Prodigy Sports is poised to continue its aggressive growth and expanding market share even further. I could not be more thrilled to add the talents of Dan and his firm into an already extremely talented staff here at Prodigy.”

Rossetti will remain headquartered in Cincinnati, Ohio, giving Prodigy Sports, located equidistant to both New York City and Philadelphia, a broader base across North America. Some of Ascension’s clients who will now fall under Prodigy’s already impressive list of partners, include Professional Bull Riders, USTA, Bellator MMA, Planet Hollywood, ISC Motorsports, Speedway Motorsports, Richard Childress Racing, Circuit of the Americas, and many others.

“We’re excited to join Scott and his diversely talented team at Prodigy Sports,” Rossetti said. “They have continued to prove themselves as one of the leaders in executive search within our industry. We share many of the same philosophies as it relates to taking care of clients as well as the candidate throughout the search process. I look forward to furthering the growth of Prodigy Sports into the future.”

In conjunction with Ascension’s clients, Prodigy Sports has longstanding partnerships with iconic organizations, including On Location Experiences, AEG, New York Yankees, TD Garden & Boston Bruins, PGA TOUR, Engine Shop and SeatGeek.
