Ben Dogra was an American sports agent who, until July 2006, headed the Football Division of SFX Football, with associate Mark Heligman. Dogra graduated from George Mason University with a B.S. in Economics, then earned his law degree from St. Louis University School of Law. He previously worked with Jim Steiner in St. Louis, at SMG (now SFX Sports Group, which is a subsidiary of Clear Channel Entertainment). Dogra now co-heads CAA Football with Tom Condon.
Dogra got his start in 1993 as an intern at SMG. Dogra was named the 6th Most Powerful Sports Agent in 2008 by Sports Business Journal. He has also represented more first round draft choices than any other NFL agent since 2004.
