Molly Fletcher is a trailblazer in every sense of the word. She is a rare talent of business wisdom, relationship brilliance and unwavering optimism. As a CEO, she shares her unconventional and unique techniques that made her one of the first female sports agents in the high-stakes, big-ego world of professional sports and now a successful entrepreneur.
As president of client representation for sports and entertainment agency CSE, Fletcher spent two decades as one of the world’s only female sports agents. She was hailed as the “female Jerry Maguire” by CNN as she recruited and represented hundreds of sports’ biggest names, including Hall of Fame pitcher John Smoltz, PGA TOUR golfer Matt Kuchar, broadcaster Erin Andrews, and basketball championship coaches Tom Izzo and Doc Rivers. As she successfully negotiated over $500 million in contracts and built lasting relationships, she also observed and adopted the traits of those at the top of their game.
She has been featured in ESPN, The Magazine, Fast Company, Forbes and Sports Illustrated, and has energized organizations as diverse as AT&T, Bank of America, Michigan State, Georgia Tech, the PGA TOUR and Home Depot.
Fletcher is the author of four books: Fearless At Work; A Winner’s Guide to Negotiating; The Business of Being the Best; and The 5 Best Tools to Find Your Dream Career. She’s also the founder of The Betterment Institute, a series of online coaching courses for corporations and individuals.
She has been recognized by Michigan State University with the Outstanding Alumni Award and numerous other awards. She currently serves as a national trustee member for the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, after serving on the Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta board and as a member of the Young Presidents’ Organization (YPO).
Fletcher earned a bachelor’s degree in communications from Michigan State University while competing in tennis as an elite college athlete. Her energy and passion for life shines through everything she does, most of all when she is home in Atlanta with her husband Fred and their three daughters.
