Sandy Montag '85 wins 2019 Glickman Award
The Marty Glickman Award is an annual honor that recognizes distinguished Syracuse alumni for their outstanding achievement for leadership in sports media. On Wednesday night in the Joyce Hergenhan Auditorium, history was made. This year’s award was presented to Sandy Montag ’85, the first-ever non-broadcaster to receive this honor.
Montag, who founded The Montag Group in 2014, is a decorated sport and entertainment agent who has spent over 30 years in the business. Montag started his career at IMG in 1985 as an assistant to John Madden. While learning his craft and the ins and outs of professional representation, Montag began to bring in people that he would soon realize would be way more than clients.
Bob Costas ’74, Mike Tirico ’88, Scott Van Pelt, Marv Albert ’63, Sean McDonough ’84, and Beth Mowens ’90 are just a sample of talent Montag represents. Tirico, McDonough, Mowins, Albert, and Costas are all past winners of the Glickman Award and were in attendance to honor Montag.
Ian Eagle ’90 was the 2018 Glickman recipient and presented this year’s award to Montag. In his presentation, Eagle said Sandy was the true definition of a professional that had genuine care for his client’s behalf.
Montag embodies his drive for relationships that last a lifetime in The Montag Group, relayed in its mission statement: “We accelerate the success of our partners with a long-term vision and an uncompromised trust.”
