SEG expands network in USA and welcomes football agent Jochen Graf

US Football agent Jochen Graf is joining the SEG family. Jochen had a professional football career for almost ten years and retired from playing professionally in 2019. After his last professional match, Jochen accepted a position to work for the agency where he had been a client for the final 3 years of his playing career. In an 18 months period, he created an extensive client list with top players from around the world playing in the MLS stadiums and a broad network with agents operating in California, South Carolina and Utah. Jochen signs players who fit his standard of professionalism and character and looks to support their on-field talent. It’s Jochen’s mission to provide top young talent in the United States a new pathway into the highest levels of European football and will provide clubs with perfectly fit SEG clients.

Remco Oversier at SEG says about the collaboration: “At SEG, we’re always ambitiously looking to grow and improve our services, to create and maximise opportunities and careers. In recent years, we have guided many transfers to and from North America, now it is time for the next step: a team of SEG Agents based in the US. By launching our American branch with a team of four highly-skilled agents immediately, we ensure a strong presence and can guarantee our focused and engaged approach towards clubs and exceptional talents will be carried out globally”.

Jochen adds: “In signing with SEG, I am happy that I have chosen to join an enterprise that sees the big picture in football and has a proven record of success. I saw an excellent fit culturally with an organisation I was proud to become a part of. It was an opportunity I could not turn down. I began as an agent to assist players in achieving their full potential on and off the pitch, but in an alternative way to what we traditionally see in the football business. It excites me to join a company where my ideals and ambitions align so well. I am grateful for the opportunity to grow the SEG name in this part of the world and cannot wait to see where the next 5 years takes us”
