Meet the Team
Name: Alex Marsh
Role: Production Assistant
My name is Alex Marsh and I joined the Provision Production team earlier this year as a Production Assistant. I hate writing about myself, but I was told I had to – so here goes!
I have been playing golf for most of my life and currently play off a +1 handicap, which apparently makes me the second best golfer at Provision (this is the topic of much debate in the office!) they are still yet to tell me who number one is…
I recently graduated from Rogers State University in Oklahoma where I was playing on a four-year golf scholarship. I couldn’t believe I was going to have the opportunity to live in America and play golf for 4 years. I was really excited for the challenge, and of course I was a little nervous but as soon as I arrived and met everyone the nerves disappeared. I got to play golf every day and our team played in 12 tournaments a year. It was very competitive, but I enjoyed being challenged and testing myself.
I think the best course I played while in the states was TPC San Antonio, it was 10 days before the Valero Texas Open and all of the grandstands were up – it was epic! Also, they have a bunker in the middle of the green on the 16th hole, not often you see that.
I absolutely loved my time in America, it was such an incredible experience playing golf full time alongside completing my degree.
As well as all of the golf I got to play I just really enjoyed living in the states – the food is amazing! I think my primary reason for going back would be to get some Raising Cane’s chicken along with the world-famous Canes sauce!!
I am now back in the UK and keen to stay in the world of sport. Before joining Provision I worked at a company who supported placing athletes at universities in America. It was great as I had firsthand experience and could answer all of their questions. I learnt loads about industry but was keen to be more hands on the events world, so when I saw the Production Assistant role at Provision I had to apply.
I am very excited to be working with the Provision Team. I am a big sports fan and it is extremely cool to be a part of putting together some amazing fan activations at some of the biggest sporting events in the world!
