Rod is a veteran financial services professional and college baseball coach. His financial services career began in 2001 while in pursuit of a Major League Baseball career. Though that did not pan out, White spent 6 months out of the year from 2001-2006 playing, coaching, managing, and climbing the ranks to general management in Independent Baseball in the Southeastern Professional Baseball League. Rod found great success and fulfillment in this while simultaneously building his financial services career. With the League’s demise Rod ultimately made Financial Services full-time while maintaining his love for the game of baseball by coaching part-time.
During his 12 years in this industry, Rod worked with companies like New England Financial and MassMutual. Rod decided to leave the industry to pursue his first love, Baseball.
Since 2012, Rod has coached JUCO to Division 1 Baseball all over the US and Canada; scouted for 2 MLB Organizations; helped370+ athletes earn college scholarships; had over 45 Draft picks with 8 seeing the Big Show including 2 in the 2022 MLB Season; and is a Certified Sports Agent and Sports Marketing Agent specializing in Name Image Likeness (NIL) Marketing & Management for over 70 plus athletes.
Now things have come full circle for Rod. As President & CEO of The Godfathers Sports & Entertainment Group* and forming an alliance with Baker Camp Arnold, he now utilizes his extensive wealth of knowledge in both the sports and financial services industries to provide athlete clients with opportunities to create wealth through their Athletic Abilities and Endorsement Opportunities; and small business clients with opportunities to grow their products or brand reach through our athletes; while providing both with an holistic approach to wealth growth.
