141 Première Sports & Entertainment is the offspring of Rolfing Productions, Inc., which under the leadership of Mark Rolfing pioneered sports marketing, primarily professional golf and NCAA basketball, in the state of Hawaii. As the company grew, Rolfing gave wings to this offspring, enabling the new entity and its experienced team to expand its scope and application to new and existing event marketing, management and television production under the leadership of Ray and Sherel Stosik. In 1999, the company was purchased by a global communications and marketing organization which gave the team access to the full array of traditional and non-traditional marketing resources for its clients.
141 Première Sports & Entertainment has developed a strong and loyal clientele over the past twenty-five years. Our team of sports marketing specialists has provided comprehensive event marketing and management for Champions Tour events including the Turtle Bay Championship (formerly the Kaanapali Classic), The Senior Skins Game and the MasterCard Championship held in the Hawaiian Islands, as well as for the PGA TOUR's Sony Open in Hawaii and the LPGA's LOTTE Championship and SBS OPEN at Turtle Bay.
West Coast management contracts have included the FHP Healthcare Classic at Ojai, CA (ESPN), the Michael Douglas Celebrity Challenge (ABC), the EMC Golf Skills Challenge (NBC), and the Hyundai Team Matches at Monarch Beach in Laguna Nigel, CA. Ancillary business segments include sponsorship packaging, sponsorship acquisition, pro-am sales, and television production management, as well as event consultation (84 Lumber Classic PGA TOUR) and development.
The 141 team brings its clients a skill-set developed by successfully producing "live" events and television productions located on a remote island chain with support resource limitations. Forethought, creativity and resourcefulness, with a view toward cost containment have become hallmarks of our event and production management discipline. Rigorous advance planning, and the broad-based promotions expertise and geographic reach of the 141 network of sister companies worldwide complement our efforts.
We are a full-service sports marketing company specializing in comprehensive event marketing and management based in Honolulu, Hawaii. We are wholly owned by WPP, one of the world's largest global communications services companies (125 companies in the Group) with more than 2,000 offices in 106 countries.
