Jonathan Barnett named world sport’s third most-powerful agent

Jonathan Barnett has once again been named Britain’s most powerful sports agent.

The Stellar Group Chairman was handed the accolade by the influential Forbes magazine, which also estimates that Jonathan is the third most-powerful sports agent in the world.

The agency as a whole has moved up to eighth most-valuable in all world sports – up four places on last year.

It has been another great year for Stellar, as we make our mark in new territories like Germany and new sports, such as the NFL. But far from resting on his laurels, Jonathan is confident even more success is to come.

“Stellar is breaking new ground and expanding like never before, we are probably already far ahead of the figures that the magazine has access to,” he said.

“I intend to become the number one agent and for Stellar to be the number one agency. We are well on track for that to happen and the plans we have to move into new sports and open up new opportunities for our clients will see us reach our goals.”

Stellar Group’s 25-year-plus success story is based on the strong partnership between Jonathan and his partner David Manasseh and a staff roster that includes some of the most respected, hard-working agents and intermediaries in the world.

Paying tribute to the “Stellar family” Jonathan added that the secret of the group’s success was the people who worked for it.

“Stellar has been able to get where it is because of the great people it employs,” Jonathan said. “Their hard work and the strong relationships they build and maintain are what makes us so strong and why so many clients put their trust in us to guide their careers.”
