Marcus D. Andrews used his experience assisting Miami’s top entertainment and sports personalities to bring forth The ONE Agency – Miami’s first premier, talent management agency.
Mr. Andrews now leads the vision and day-to-day growth of the company, while treating everyone like family along the way. Leaving behind Robbins, Illinois, a small town 20 miles south of Chicago, at only 21 years old, taught him to persevere.
His journey began when childhood friend and NBA basketball player, Dwyane Wade invited him to Miami for the first time. During this trip, he was delighted and motivated by the opportunities the city had to offer. A week after returning home and filling out numerous job applications, he traveled 1,170 miles back to Miami determined to start a new life. Within two weeks of his arrival, he began working as a sales and service agent for companies like Expedia and Norwegian Cruise line.
Yet, through his ambition and with the right connections, he managed to kick-off his career when he launched M3Z Entertainment, an artist development and event planning company. With his company on the rise, Mr. Andrews began to make strong business connections brokering endorsement contracts for Dwyane Wade.
The first corporate contract Mr. Andrews initiated was with Dwyane Wade and Sean John Global Apparel, P.Diddy’s clothing line, giving him access to many high-profile celebrities and entrepreneurs. Mr. Andrews then ventured to become president of Wade Global from 2007 to 2010, where he helped initiate Dwyane Wade Basketball Camps hosted in Chicago and South Florida. He also introduced Allen Furst and Brett Friedman of Agency 21 to lead Wade’s World Weekend in Chicago. Currently, Agency 21 continues to work with Wade’s World Foundation and other events like The RunWade Fashion Show.
In 2010, Mr. Andrews began new ventures and closing deals with high-end companies like The Collection, NBA Films, Warner Bros, in addition to solidifying real estate partnerships with Terra Group, Fortune Capital Partners, and Rockwood Capital. After 10 years of experience in the field, Mr. Andrews felt it was time to open The ONE Agency and empower his clients to make savvy business decisions through his marketing expertise and dedication to excellence. Mr. Andrews is now in partnership with The Shaner Corp and AMG Sports among others, which contribute to his already established portfolio.
Mr. Andrews and his team aspire for each client to grow personally and professionally in a homelike environment, where agents engage with clients in a unique, personal way.
Besides TOA, Mr. Andrews recently entered in a new business venture, something he aspired to do all his life, to give back to his hometown, Robbins, Illinois. His restaurant, Eileen’s, is expected to open by the end of September or early October 2017, making it the first restaurant developed in the village. The franchise will offer food enthusiasts the opportunity to devour typical dishes like barbecue ribs, steaks sandwiches and burgers. Mr. Andrews and his family also have in mind to open a second chain of restaurants, Andrew’s Sports Bar & Grill in the Chicago west loop area.
In addition, Mr. Andrews is also working on hotel development projects in South Florida.
