Arena marketing executive secures role in NBA
Leicester Riders marketing executive Alex Medina has secured a role in the NBA’s Global Media Distribution team!
Alex came to the Riders two seasons ago as a marketing student at the Business School at the University of Leicester, looking to gain experience working in the world of professional sport to further his career.
With the club's support, Alex’s initial activities included working with the Morningside Arena, promoting the work of the coaches of the Leicester Riders Foundation and doing promotional work with the Riders. He then joined our team full-time earlier this year, which, in turn, allowed him to secure a job working for the biggest basketball brand in the world.
Alex is a shining success in the aspirations of our companies, providing career opportunities for local students and interns.
“I am massively thankful to this organisation which has offered me so many opportunities and support over the past two years and undoubtedly helped land my dream role,” said Alex.
“I am especially thankful to Kevin Routledge and Laura Shephard for the amazing opportunity to be part of the team and work with some incredible people across all three businesses, including the Leicester Riders Foundation, who do incredible work across the Leicestershire community.
“It has been a pleasure working with everyone here, and I wish the organisation all the best as it continues to be the premier basketball club in the UK.”
Ollie Cooper has joined the team as our new marketing executive for the Riders, helping the existing resources in the Foundation and helping drive forward the Morningside Arena, thereby continuing Alex’s outstanding work.
We all wish Alex all the best in his future endeavours.
