GSE Worldwide agrees to acquire golf agency Impact Point

GSE Worldwide Inc., a New York-based talent representation and sports and entertainment marketing and management firm, has agreed to acquire Swiss golf management agency Impact Point AG.

In a move toward further expansion, the acquisition of Impact Point will grow GSE Worldwide’s position in golf and following the deal closing, the firm will represent 10 of the world’s top 100 golfers, including Sergio Garcia and Paul Casey.

Financial terms were not disclosed.

GSE Worldwide was formed earlier this year when independent investment firm Gatemore Capital Management acquired the US business of athlete representation and sports marketing agency TLA Worldwide, with that agency then rebranded to GSE Worldwide.

Impact Point’s leadership team of Irek Myskow and Carlos Rodriguez will join GSE Worldwide and work with the firm’s head of golf and sports marketing, Andrew Witlieb.

“Combining the expertise and resources of both agencies will result in clear and immediate benefits to our golf clients and the company as a whole,” Witlieb said.
