Det är ett problem att företag avböjer samarbeten med idrottsstjärnor och istället väljer att marknadsföra sig med personer som främst profilerat sig genom sociala medier. I många företagsvärldar väger prestation i dag fjäderlätt i konkurrensen med yta, skriver Nina Wennerström, grundare och vd Wesport.
From last year’s finalist to this year’s champion: Kiki Bertens opened up on a magical week at the Mutua Madrid Open, and revealed how last year’s lessons primed her for success.
29 män – och en kvinna. Sverige får nu sin andra kvinnliga fotbollsagent när Nina Wennerström tar klivet in i fotbollsvärlden. – Vi vill bli en av de största agenturerna i norra Europa, säger hon.
Efter en nedlagd tenniskarriär och åtta år i USA som sportagent valde Nina Wennerström att starta eget i en bransch där mansdominansen är total. “Konkurrensen i branschen är stentuff, alla är ute efter samma spelare och riskerna är stora”, säger hon till Veckans Affärer.
Kiki Bertens turned a slow start into an emphatic finish to capture her eighth career title and first of 2019 at the St. Petersburg Ladies Trophy, knocking out Croatian youngster Donna Vekic in straight sets.
Nina Wennerström founded Wesport in 2014 and currently serves as the company’s CEO. Nina has over 13 years of experience within the international sports management industry and has throughout her career recruited and represented some of the best athletes in the world.
