Born and raised in Los Angeles, Marc Reede has had an innate love for all things sports and entertainment. While at UCLA, a close friend on the UCLA Basketball Team with NBA potential asked Marc to be his agent. Marc followed his heart and pursued a career in sports.

At his mentor’s suggestion, Marc took the LSAT and then earned his Law Degree from Loyola Law School with the hope of becoming a sports agent. Post-law school interviews with entertainment law firms and sports management companies revealed a side of the agenting business that didn’t appeal to Marc, and he found himself in his late 20’s struggling to figure out what he wanted to do with his life. Marc then found a new interest working in live television as a Production Associate with NBC Sports and ABC Sports.

These production roles put him in a position of closeness with the local sports teams in Los Angeles, and a chance encounter at age 28 with then-Lakers Head Coach Pat Riley gave Marc the opportunity to start his own business. Thus began a 30-year career for Marc as a lecture agent that would expose him on an up close and personal level with some of America’s most prolific athletes, entrepreneurs, and writers. The stories that Marc has heard firsthand from Bill Gates, Magic Johnson, Venus Williams, Neil Armstrong and so many more have equipped him with motivational and inspirational wisdoms that few get the chance to share at this level.

Marc’s longstanding passion for sports led both of his children to college: his daughter played tennis at The University of Southern California while his son swam for Boston College. And because a mentor was so instrumental during and after Marc’s college days, Marc Reede is devoted to assisting college seniors with this transition in their lives today as a popular college speaker.
