Sports Business Awards: Octagon Wins Best Talent Representation Of The Year

Octagon is now a multifaceted sports marketing agency, but since it has its roots in talent representation, winning in that category for the first time seems more than appropriate. As the rep for Warriors G and two-time NBA MVP Stephen Curry, Octagon helped orchestrate the year's biggest individual athlete story. "We will never be able to think of this recognition without recalling the year Steph Curry had and how big an impact he had on sports, and especially the NBA, on and off the court," said Octagon Founder & President Phil de Picciotto. "Our stability, the breadth of our services and our staff really came together over the past year, and all that aligned with a little bit of luck, which combined to enable us to win." It was the fifth overall SBA for Octagon.
