Chris Ensminger – Player / Coach– 8 times BBL All-Star:
„I have played 14 seasons as a professional basketball player in the BBL and now I am a head coach in German ProA. Looking back, I can say the experience and basketball knowledge Ingo possesses helps his clients reach their goals.

I am very grateful for everything Limelight Hoops has done for my career and family. Whether in the beginning, middle or end of my career, Ingo
’s guidance steered me in the right direction and whatever path I decide to take, Ingo will be there to assist me.“


David Brembly - Player:
„My connection with Ingo started in 2013. At the current time I was very unhappy with my current playing situation. Not only did he helped me to get out of this position, he also supported me through the tough time. The thing that I cherish the most is his honesty and involvement for each of his players. He treats everyone very professionally, personally and is always at top of his game. I am proud to be a part of the Limelight Hoops Family.“

Hans-Georg Voigtmann – Parent:
„A excellent expert of the basketball scene, a competent advisor in any regard, somebody, who will not abuse your trust, simply said, you can trust Ingo to make the right decisions for your son.“

Adam Waczynski – Player:
„Im with Ingo since 2010 and Im very happy to be a member of his Limelight Hoops agency. He was always helping and giving advices to do the best for me. Were meeting couple times every year, having contact all the time and looking for solutions for the future. With Ingo Im much more safe and I know that nothing bad can happen to me and my family. He also is a great person who will guide you to the very best of your sports career.“


Steve Esterkamp – Player / Coach:
„I have been working with Ingo since 2009. He has always been honest and upfront with me which I think is hard to find in a good agent these days. After a very serious injury a couple of years ago when I was still a player, I was not able to play for a year and a half. Ingo stood always behind me. He was able to help me get through this and find my way back on the court. He was a big help for me to continue my playing career and to make the transition to become a coach afterwards.“ 


Sebastian Machowski – Player / Coach:
„In the early 90s Ingo and I played for ALBA Berlin and ever since we have had a sincere friendship. For the last years of my career as a player Ingo took care of all contracts and continues to do so successfully also after I have became coach. With his serious approach and professional attitude he earned my complete trust. Based on his various experience in basketball Ingo is an important and valuable consultant for all aspects of our sport.“
