Bell Pottinger in sports agent link

One of Britain's best-known football agents has moved his new company into Bell Pottinger's Holborn offices - with a view to merging with the group.

Jon Holmes, founder of sports agency SFX, is a friend of chairman Piers Pottinger and is looking to forge links between his new company, Jon Holmes Ltd, and Bell Pottinger Sport & Sponsorship.

‘We're living together now and if it turns out to be compatible, we'll get married,' Holmes told PRWeek of the agency relationship.

Holmes co-founded SFX with Tony Stephens more than 20 years ago.

SFX was bought earlier this month by US agency Wasserman Media Group. Holmes left and took a portfolio of sporting broadcast clients to his new venture, including Gary Lineker and Sir Clive Woodward.
