Strategy, activation, measurement

True brand partners

We'll dive deep into your business to develop a strategic, comprehensive sponsorship approach that delivers against your goals. And we’re property-agnostic, working solely for brands to find the right fit for our clients—no conflict of interest.

We know the landscape

With vast B2B and B2C experience, GMR has a nuanced understanding of the sponsorship landscape, the fans, and the fan experience. We also have deep relationships across sports and entertainment. From amateur athletes to global events, so we know who to call to uncover insights and opportunities not easily accessed— and get the best deal done.

End-to-end sponsorship services

Complete sponsorship life cycle, in house, one unified team—from strategy/evaluation and negotiation/valuation all the way through creative development, activation, social amplification and measurement.

"We have never worked with an agency that's brought the quality, the expertise, and the knowledge of people that GMR can bring."

-Matt Lederer, Comcast
