NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - March 31, 2014) - Stealth SME, LLC ("Stealth") announced today that it has acquired Dutt Sports Services, Inc. (DSSI), The Sloan Sports Group, LifeSports Management, Crimson Marketing Group, and Envision Sports Agency. These agencies will join Stealth Sports, a division of Stealth. Stealth also acquired CENERGY Marketing & Communications, LLC, which will join Stealth Media House, the media and marketing division of Stealth. Stealth is an integrated consultancy, sports media and entertainment business, with senior level sports, marketing, sponsorship, and brand experience across those industries.

William L. Strickland, Esq. will lead the sports group serving as the Senior Managing Partner of Stealth Sports. Bill is well known and respected in the sports industry for his integrity, vision, and for being one of the most knowledgeable and respected negotiators in sports. He has been successfully representing professional athletes full-time as a business executive and attorney/agent for over 30 years; primarily in the NBA, the NFL, and for a limited time, in MLB, and was one of a very few agents registered and certified in all three (3) major sports at the same time. During his sports career, he has completed numerous legal and commercial transactions, and negotiated extensively throughout the NBA and NFL while consummating over $1.75 billion in gross compensation for his clients.

Tony Dutt (DSSI) will serve as a Managing Partner of Stealth Basketball. Todd Ramasar (LifeSports Management) will serve as a Managing Partner of Stealth Basketball.

"We have pulled together reputable partners who are experienced in their respective sports at every level of athletic representation and management," said Strickland. "We will continue to selectively expand with additional partners who share our vision of building a company where we remain focused on providing quality client services rather than merely expanding the number of clients."

Stealth Media House is a full-service group of businesses providing sports and entertainment marketing, media content management, and digital activation across an integrated channel.

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations.
