From the Nominator
Northwestern University’s multilingual, international alum Alex Saratsis discusses both his career as a high-powered sports agent and his unique relationship with top client, Giannis Antetokounmpo, aka “The Greek Freak” (2020 NBA MVP). This behind-the-scenes video maximized a small window of production availability to offer rare insight into the relationship between Saratsis and Antetokounmpo, both of whom are Greek natives, and supplemented beautifully the magazine profile. Saratsis describes the day-to-day life of an agent for one of the most recognizable and beloved sports figures in the world, and traces his most valuable personal and professional relationships back to his time at Northwestern.
