Friday, August 10th 2012:To Amelia and Cary Kaplan it seems like just yesterday that Cosmos Sports opened its doors in 2003. All that could be seen as you entered the office was one desk, one shared cell phone (that was often seen tossed among colleagues to answer calls and assist customers), one computer, and a handful of chairs.
The only things that remained constant out of that group some nine years later is President Cary Kaplan, Vice President Amelia Kaplan, and the cell phone.
Starting a business is no easy task, but growing a business to what Cosmos Sports has become today is an even greater one. It has been a roller coaster ride with both ups and downs throughout the years, as is expected in the sports business. However, like any business you have to start somewhere. As long as you have the right foundation in place with the right people behind it, the only way to go is up. Proven with the addition of Directors Abhinav Nongmeikapam, Michael Miele, and Bryan McGahey all within the past 7 years, Cosmos has seen significant growth within all facets of the business. All of whom started with Cosmos through its Sports Marketing Internship program.
For nine years, Cosmos has developed relationships with thousands of teams across almost every sports league in North America, establishing itself as an international industry leader in areas including Team Training and Education, Career Management, Corporate Sponsorship, Ticket Sales, and Corporate Branding. As sports consultants, Cosmos has worked with everyone from the Phoenix Coyotes of the National Hockey League (NHL) to the national governing body of soccer in Canada, the Canada Soccer Association (CSA).
Although, nine great years has passed, Cosmos is extremely excited for growth and success moving forward, continuing our primary commitment to "Win the Business".
