30 Jan Another star name joins Stellar International Football team
Stellar Group has added another star name to its team with the announcement that Artur Fernandes is working with our International Football department.
The former Porto star is one of Europe’s most successful and respected football agents and will work in tandem with Stellar’s senior management to support and manage transfer business. He is also responsible for all business inside Stellar Portugal.
Speaking about his move, Artur said: “Stellar is known all over the world as an agency that puts its clients first and operates to the highest ethical standards. These shared values make this a natural collaboration and one that will bring great benefits to existing and future clients as we make the most of our shared global network.
“One of the most exciting things for me will be the opportunities that will open up for players in my home country of Portugal. There is some amazing talent there waiting to burst through, so it is good know these players will have the chance to enjoy the same long-term commitment and care as those already in the Stellar family.”
Since retiring from playing in 2001, Artur quickly established himself as an agent of the highest integrity with a knack for unearthing and representing sporting talent all over the world.
He is President of the Portuguese National Association of Football Agents and a member of the Portuguese National Council of Sports, a position he has used to help shape positive reform of sporting institutions and the introduction of binding ethical frameworks.
