"We hired Barrett Sports Group at the recommendation of the league office to complete a valuation of our franchise and related assets. We were very satisfied with the work completed by Dan Barrett and his team. They delivered their report on time and on budget with no surprises. Following conversations with investment bankers and other sports industry advisors, we found that the approach and methodology they used was consistent with industry standards and presented a realistic valuation."

"Barrett Sports Group (BSG) represented MountainStar Sports Group in its 2013 acquisition of the Triple A Tucson Padres, negotiation with the City of El Paso for the development, financing, and management of a new ballpark in downtown El Paso, and presentation to the Pacific Coast League and Minor League Baseball for approval of the relocation to El Paso, among numerous tasks. BSG was involved from the very beginning of the project to opening day of the ballpark. Dan Barrett was a critical member of the team, served as Mountain Star’s lead negotiator, and was also responsible for identifying and bringing in additional resources as needed. His experience, industry knowledge, work ethic, professionalism and integrity were respected by everyone. But the qualities that set Dan apart from his peers are his leadership ability, his creativity in crafting solutions to complex financial, operational, and political issues, and his ability to listen to project stakeholders to bring parties together and deals to closure."

− Josh Hunt, Owner/CEO/Vice Chairman of the Board El Paso Chihuahuas

"We've all heard an expression substantially similar to "respect must be earned". While applicable to nearly all personal and business interactions, it holds especially true for the enterprise of sport, for no victory, achievement, or glory is obtained on a complimentary basis. Hard work, great effort, creativity, and the ability to think on the move serve as the foundation for respect in athletics, along with the essentials of honesty, and intelligence. I know, firsthand, that Dan Barrett is an adherent to this philosophy, which is why his company has earned such a stellar reputation. It is also why my University has employed the Barrett Sports Group on multiple occasions and has been extremely satisfied with the outcome."
