Aiming High: How a Prominent Sports and Celebrity Agent Hit Bottom at the Top by International Best Selling Author, Darren Prince
Darren Prince is the CEO & President of Prince Marketing Group and now an international best-selling author of his powerful memoir, Aiming High. Darren Prince is a sports and celebrity agent who, at the age of 14, founded a mail-order company selling baseball cards and traveling around the country participating in trade shows. At the age of 20, he sold his company and became an industry leader in private autograph signings for sports and celebrity memorabilia with athletes and celebrities. A-List celebrities included Muhammad Ali, Hulk Hogan, Pele, Joe Montana, Carmen Electra, and Jenny McCarthy.
In 1995 Prince started a new venture with Prince Marketing Group (PMG), representing athletes and celebrities for marketing deals consisting of endorsements, licensing, TV, movie and book deals, autograph signings, and appearances. His first client to sign with the firm was none other than Magic Johnson and they have become good friends still today!

With PMG growing at an enormous pace, Prince added Scottie Pippen, Clyde Drexler, Mickey Rourke, Roy Jones Jr, Micky Ward, and the late Evel Knievel as clients over the years. “The sports/entertainment industry is a small world and very competitive,” says Darren Prince, CEO of Prince Marketing Group. “Prince Marketing Group has prospered over the years by delivering out of the box thinking for clients and building relationships through the practice of good business and effective networking.”
