Founded in 2015 by Managing Director Marty Pask, i50 was created with the athlete in mind. Pask, a former professional athlete with the Brisbane Lions and Western Bulldogs in the AFL, wanted to create an intimate environment that catered for the demands of the professional athlete, while ensuring the Athlete is treated as a person first – and an athlete second.
i50 continues to be at the forefront of athlete representation and market consultancy through a formula of hard work, hands-on personal attention, resourcefulness and an unparalleled determination to put our clients first, no matter what task we are confronted with. By consistently delivering market leading contracts, in addition to cutting edge endorsement deals, i50 has emerged as a front runner in the sports agency landscape.
At i50 we provide a full range of quality services and never represent more clients than we can ethically handle. We personalize our services to meet the needs of each individual athlete and in doing so, treat each client equally. i50 is committed to developing personal relationships that extend beyond the playing field, and ensure that the person is directed into the right areas well beyond the length of their playing career.

Some Words From Our Talent
The way I feel about Marty hasn’t changed since the day I met him. He has more than lived up to his reputation. Marty has helped me stay on top of my finances and anything else that may come up. Marty is very fair and realistic. Some agents will sell you the world, but Marty just tells you how it is.
Marty is an exceptional agent. He is honest, hardworking and has over 10 years’ experience in the AFL. I placed all my trust in him and have been rewarded with his commitment to my growth as a person. I couldn’t have chosen a better player agent.
I was dealing with off field matters leading into the 2012 AFL National Draft, and Marty ensured my draft preparation was not effected in anyway. He worked with prospective AFL Clubs and my family to ensure that I was given the best opportunity to succeed. He showed a lot of empathy towards me as a person.
The ability for Marty to proactively recognize the opportunity for me to personally extend my playing career at another club which allowed me the chance to play in two winning Grand Finals – is unprecedented. He put my interests and ambitions as a player first.
