After 15 years of working in the sports industry, from Sales Representative to General Manager positions, in 2006, Andy Gugenheimersets up the head hunting and recruitingcompany « Sport Invest Search » in Biarritz.

In the beginning he works mainly with surfing brands, then integrates performance sport brands as well as energy drinks, pro sport clubs and video sport games. His goal remains the same: Listening to his clients, and thanks to his experience and his ability to match their specificities, finally meeting their needs. He choses to collaborate with few clients but on a long–term and regular basis.
Next he opens subsidiaries in Paris, Munich and Hong Kong. The approach is new, simple and fast, in a field that has evolved very little over the last 20 years..
In 2007 he experiments with the « speed dating » concept during international sports expo « Ispo » and hundreds of candidates come around to be interviewed for 5 minutes using the (« elevator pitch » method). The German office adopts it and « My Career Day » is born.

End of 2010 Gugenheimer decides to widen the range of his services and leaves Sport Invest Search to create AG Sport Consulting, still remaining in this niche with the same quality objective. From this point on, he dedicates more and more time to consulting activities and the management of top level athletes’ careers.
