CHRISTIAN KRANZ

certified agent & Director of Recruiting

Growing up in Buffalo, NY, Christian became very passionate for sports and got involved with coaching and assisting teammates with recruiting at a young age.

Christian graduated Cum Laude from North Carolina State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Sport Management, and received his MBA from East Carolina University. At both schools, he worked extensively within the football programs. He interned with the Buffalo Bills’ Business Development department, and also served as Chief Operating Officer for a football camp that involved numerous NFL athletes.  Additionally, Christian has worked at some of the most prestigious representation firms in the world, and has learned from several high profile agents.

Although grateful for the invaluable experiences with big agencies, Christian’s desire to create personalized and deep relationships with his clients led to his affiliation with Pillar Sports Management.  Christian’s vast experience on both the team and agency side of football has allowed him to develop a unique understanding when it comes to advising and negotiating on his client’s behalf. Christian works closely with top professionals in various industries, which allows him to provide his clients with informed guidance in all aspects of their lives.


Pillar Sports Management doesn’t just care about me as a player, they also care about me as a person. The personal attention that they provide makes a big difference, and I can honestly say they have done everything in their power to make me successful in the NFL
