Arthur Ekrem has a record of excellence in the field of entertainment and sports, including contract negotiations, marketing endorsements, deal structure, individual representation and image consulting.

We have worked with entertainers, musicians, sports figures, and sports franchises for many years and we understand the temperament and dynamic of these high-profile individuals and companies. If a prominent figure or organization is in legal, media or press trouble, we will provide the public relations fix. In addition, we offer world class athletes a long term strategy vision and advance planning for legacy preservation. This is defined as branding the world class athlete with permanent name recognition and face ID that carries into business endeavors long after the sports career is over.

We have worked with over 300 celebrities and sports figures over the years as well as sports teams such as the Baltimore Ravens and New York Yankees. We maintain ongoing relationships with our clients, participating with them in charity functions and other activities.

Understanding today's contract, licensing and endorsement market has become extremely complex and lucrative. As the financial stakes have risen, so has the need to plan for all financial and legal aspects of an entertainment, music or sports project.

Whether negotiating for an individual entertainer, athlete, sports league, or motion picture project, Arthur Ekrem Consulting has one goal, and that is to protect and represent the needs of our clients with excellence and discretion.

Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation - Donate Today

Cal Ripken Foundation
Arthur Ekrem offers support for a foundation which has been undertaken by Cal Ripken, Jr.

Cal said it best: "I never perceive of myself as a hero of any kind. I'm just a baseball player... but if you are in a position to influence people's lives, why not do all you can to cast it in a positive light."

The foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, founded in 2001 by members of the Ripken family in memory of their patriarch Cal, Sr. They work to create baseball and softball programs and facilities that positively impact disadvantaged youth by combining the principles represented by the Ripken name, the power of Cal, Jr. as a modern day hero and role model, and the universal appeal of baseball.

Today, more than 7 million American kids struggle with poverty, obesity, poor quality of education, the lack of adult role models, or the persistent presence of drugs and violence. Through baseball and softball, the Foundation works with kids in need to instill leadership qualities, a strong work ethic, sportsmanship and healthy habits.

The Mission is "To use baseball taught "The Ripken Way" as a tool to help young people develop positive character traits such as leadership, teamwork and good sportsmanship, as well as a healthy lifestyle." The Ripken Foundation benefits thousands of youth annually through a variety of community efforts.
