Interview with Gregory Tanner, founder of  Pro Rugby Agency USA and author of “The Business of Rugby”

DENVER, COLORADO, USA – November 20, 2015

Pro Rugby Agency answers questions about the viability of rugby as a professional sport, the sports popularity in the United States, and where it grows from today.

Taking his business experience to get into the business of professional rugby, Greg Tanner talks with Evrybit about Pro Rugby Agency, his book, and the “wild west of rugby”.


Evrybit: Welcome Greg, and thanks for taking the time to sit down for this interview.  Let’s start with telling us why your focus is in sports and more specifically rugby. 

Tanner: I spent the last four years looking at rugby and whether or not there is an opportunity to make money in or around the sport.   Around 2012,  I concluded that it was the time to get involved and start laying ground work for what will be a breakout sport in the United States.

Evrybit: It’s quite a change from running Aspen Capital Fund, focusing on Hispanic markets and early stage funding.  What is your biggest challenge?

Tanner: It’s actually not much different.  Surprisingly, there are a lot of common business challenges and problems that need to be solved.   But looking at opportunities, applying a proven methodology, and selling is applied the same way.   There is a lot less risk and it’s a lot more fun,  the rugby people are great to work, and when it comes down to it – as much of a cliché it is very much a personal relationship business.

Evrybit: So there is a viable business in the sport of rugby? Is it professional in the United States? 

Tanner:  The professional game is coming in 2016.  There are many professional leagues throughout Europe, and the southern hemisphere.   There is a very high level of competition across America the most successful to date is the Pacific Rugby Premiership, we have seen the rise of the American Rugby Premiership and now the “PRO League”.    There is plenty of rugby in America.   But, I see that rugby will need to take a page from history and grow organically and use the best practices that we see in the successful professional leagues,  even learn from Major League Soccer, who nearly failed trying to follow the NFL model.

Evrybit: So how does Pro Rugby Agency play a part if rugby isn’t professional?

Tanner: Just because it isn’t professional doesn’t mean there isn’t money in the sport.    There is tons of money spent on and around rugby.  Consider 900 college teams and 700 clubs here, competitions, tournaments, entertainment, hospitality, gear, travel, etc.   It’s a big sport where brands are very excited to be associated with and are seeking ways to get involved.  That’s the problem we solve we help the athletes, teams, leagues, events create revenue and we help brands get involved with mature and commercially viable mediums.   We are a selling function of marketing.   We constantly sell rugby to everybody.

Evrybit:  Why don’t we see it broadcast on television or even radio?

Tanner:  That is another challenge we help our clients with, building strategic maturity.   Just as any other business you must be mature in all aspects of business to be attractive commercially.   Rugby is good and playing the game and competing, but not so well at the other business operations, for instance they know how to market but they really need to market and sell.   All parts of the business of rugby need to work at the mature level of the competition.

Evrybit: Is this what your book is about?

Tanner: “The Business of Rugby” is a very light version of this.  We talk about what I feel is obvious for everyone in professional rugby or has been around professional rugby.  I really wrote it based on what I think what American entrepreneurs do wrong to rugby, which is try to go too big too fast and turn it in to an NFL.    The NFL didn’t get to where it is today in a decade it’s been built on 50 years of growth and maturity.

Evrybit: Can rugby be as popular as American Football?  It’s seems like such a small sport in America.

Tanner: Certainly can be.  I think at this moment there is a thirst for consuming the game on the level we see other professional sports here in the U.S.  There just isn’t a mature medium for networks to cover it, make money on it and give a professional grade production.  It’s actually a very big sport in America the problem is that businessmen have taken sports like lacrosse, bowling and even darts to a commercial maturity that appeals to brands and mass consumption.   When rugby gets traction it’s going to breakout like MMA did.  In 1993 no one knew what that was.   Now it takes no explanation on a global level.   That’s why I think it is the “Wild West” of rugby right now.

Evrybit:  Where does the sport grow from today?

Tanner: I see rugby growing just like the NFL did with two leagues, because logistically the country is too bit to overcome the travel and cost in early stages.    I see that the working competitions will mature and grow from the current momentum they have.  If they overcome the revenue generation problem and grow with strategic development, they will succeed.   As an industry rugby will only become more competitive and you will see more and more specialization such as women’s rugby, sevens, and collegiate.   There are some many aspects, regions and segments in the United States.   The more I get involved the more I find opportunities.   Imagine being at the beginning of the industrial revolution, that is really where rugby in the United States is.  It’s a great time to be a part of the sport.

ProRugbyAgencyPro Rugby Agency pitches U.S. rugby to the masses in England.

DENVER, COLORADO, USA – September 17, 2015

Pro Rugby Agency (http://professionalrugby.agency) will be traveling to the United Kingdom for the Rugby World Cup.  The purpose of the trip isn’t to sign the big professional names and teams based in abroad in the U.K., France, Italy or from down under.   It’s to pitch the professional game which hasn’t arrived in the United States yet to everyone and anyone that will listen.

“Most people don’t understand the huge opportunity in the United States.” Comments Greg Tanner, “It’s really like the beginning of the NFL or the industrial revolution,  the game is ripe for business opportunity and growth, the question is who is prepared for this explosion?”

Pro Rugby Agency has clients that are invested in the game and preparing to capitalize on the professional era in America.   The agency has media, consumer, services, and technology companies onboard for when the opportunity arrives.   The agency is also signing players eager to get exposure to the top teams.  “It’s astounding to me how many players from abroad want to come to play in America, even more astounding is the number of untapped talent yet to be found in our backyard.”  Adds Tanner.

Mr. Tanner has spent a lot of time and effort to becoming subject matter expert in the business of rugby.  He penned the book – “The Business of Rugby”  while working on a graduate program at U.K. based Sports Management World Wide.    He hopes to capitalize on his business experience and analysis knowledge he gained while at Aspen Capital Fund.

“I had to change gears – this is just too big,  the timing is perfect and now the biggest rugby event in the world is happening and I will be in the middle of it all.”  Remarks Tanner.

The State Of Leadership in Spain

The State Of Leadership in Spain

There are many factors that affect business. Leadership is among the most important when it comes to boosting the performance of a company. Managerial talent is one of the major sources of sustainable competitive advantage that a company has because its value is almost directly reflection of the managers’ decisions. A strong leadership team within a company can inspire creativity, increase productivity and help keep the company strong against their competition.
Treeveo, a startup company based in Barcelona, recently conducted a survey to understand the state of leadership in Spain. The survey was rolled out over a month’s time by interviewing participants from different disciplines about the characteristics of their respective bosses. This was done via www.comoestujefe.es. After completing their analysis of the data from 600+ participants, they have found some very interesting data about the difference in Catalan leaders and leaders from the rest of Spain.

A couple main highlights of the survey findings include:
“Leaders from Catalonia are on average more visionary than those from the rest of Spain”

“Leaders from the rest of Spain are on average more intellectually stimulating than those from Catalonia.”
The entire project was designed around a widely acclaimed scientific leadership framework called the Full Range Leadership Model. The survey was designed around this model, created to identify performance within each individual dimension of the framework.

The survey asked questions like the following to rate their boss against specific dimensions.

Q: This picture most accurately describes my boss. (Most popular answer: Josep Guardiola)

Q: Does my boss lead by example? (54%)

Q: Does my boss demand me best performance? (%78)

Jeroen Kemperman, co-founder and CEO of the company says, “Since our product helps to develop the leadership skills of our users, we were naturally curious about how well the current leaders in Spain are doing. That led us to this experiment, and ultimately to some enlightening conclusions.”
The full results of the “State of Leadership in Spain” Survey are available for FREE at http://treeveo.com.

May someone please explain Fixed Income and Private Equities to me please?

I am 16 years old, and I am interested in the stock market. I own shares from several companies and have a basic understanding of how the stock market works. I want to get a degree in business and finance after high school, and then go into finance after University. So I would appreciate if some one who has some experience or has knowledge of them please explain both private equities and fixed income and how they work. BTW, I am from Canada if that makes any difference.

Chosen Answer:

Private equities are investments directly into privately-held companies, and not traded through the stock market. The investors are institutional investors (banks, hedge funds, venture capital companies, and so on) and wealthy private individual investors.
Fixed Income securities would be either bonds or preferred stock, which pay the investor a stated amount each period, and have precedence over common equities in the event of a re-organization. Convertible bonds and preferred stocks also have the fixed-income protection, but would generally yield less than the straight bonds or preferred stock, because they would have an opportunity to share in any appreciation in the common equity.

Best Private Equity Careers in Firm

I am often asked what is the best career in private equity? This is a pretty subjective question so I cannot give a definitive answer on what the absolute best job in private equity is, but I can give you an idea that you may not have considered. Professionals looking to work for a PE firm often overlook a career as a service provider to a PE firm.

A service provider career may be even more rewarding than working at a PE firm which can be highly stressful and competitive with low job security at some firms. Service providers on the other hand work on a less demanding work schedule sometimes while still getting the opportunity to work closely with PE firms and management. There are many different careers as a service provider to buyout or venture capital firms.

Ways in which you can pursue a career as a service provider to private equity firms:

  • Auditors and Accounting Services: in this capacity you can serve buyout firms by auditing the firm and its portfolio companies. Additionally, PE firms need up-to-date accounting services and may out source this work to a third party accounting firm.
  • Fund Administration Services: A fund administrator will take over some of the more consuming responsibilities of managing a firm, allowing the PE management to manage the portfolio.
  • Marketing and Sales Consultants: A large private equity firm may hire in house marketers but many of the small to mid level firms will rely on third party fund marketers and sales consultants to help raise capital for the fund from investors.
  • Compliance Services: Compliance specialists are becoming more necessary as firms must meet more rigorous government regulations in the recent financial overhaul.
  • IT Consultants & Technology Services: These consultants will help with software and technology that is crucial for portfolio management and managing a PE firm, even just setting up the company website.
  • Attorneys and Law Services: A lot of money in a PE firm means that often there is litigation and PE firms will use legal consultants and attorneys to help in legal matters.


In each of these service provider roles it is valuable to have some training in private equity.
