OUR MANAGING PARTNER APPEARED ON ESPN SHOW FIRST TAKE
On September 20, 2019 ESPN hosted its show First Take from Wilmington DE as part of the Historically Black College & University (HBCU) college week. Stephen A Smith, host of First Take, was the ambassador of the HBCU week event.
Part of the show, Stephen A Smith, a graduate of the HBCU Winston Salem State University, was surprised by some of his college teammates from WSSU. One of those former teammates included SMG Consulting Group’s Managing Partner Gary Stephens.
During the show, Stephen A interviewed Gary Stephens in which they reminisced over a story about Gary impersonating Stephen A in college while wearing a suit given to Stephen A from his father.
Additionally, Stephen A Smith produced a Facebook live with himself and his friends. During the recording, Stephen A acknowledge Gary’s work at SMG Consulting Group. At the 1:37 mark of the video, Stephen A says, By the way, if you have any accounting issues, you need someone to handle your money, this dude right here, know what the hell he is doing.”
“I was truly grateful that ESPN reached out to me and the guys to part of this particular show,” states Gary. It was an awesome experience. We got to meet a basketball and business icon in Earvin “Magic” Johnson. Also, my boy recognized the type of work I do, which I was surprised but truly appreciative. But, more importantly, the best part of the event was that the fellas got to hang out and genuinely enjoy each other’s company as we did in college.”
