Seth Bangert ’09
: Sales Representative, Orlando Magic – Orlando, FLWhat and where did you study after graduating from Randolph?
Following my senior year at Randolph I was recruited to play basketball for Huntingdon College located in Montgomery, AL. After enjoying two years of being a student athlete I decided to transfer to the University of Alabama. I graduated this spring from the Capstone with a Bachelors degree in Marketing and Professional Sales Specialization. What are some highlights of your scholastic and career paths?
-Winning the 2011 GSAC basketball championship my final season at Huntingdon College
-I was chosen as an officer for the SAAC (Student Athlete Advisory Council) to represent the men’s basketball team at Huntingdon College
-Interning for Crimson Tide Sports Marketing where I was responsible for handling marketing, promotion and game operations for the University of Alabama’s athletic events
-I was invited as a bowl ambassador for the 2014 BBVA Compass Bowl in Birmingham, AL. What awards/honors have you received?
I was awarded to the President’s Honors list (4.0 GPA) once and Dean’s list (3.5 GPA or above) twice during my time at Alabama.What do you currently do?
I am currently working as a sales representative for the Orlando Magic. My role in the front office is to generate maximum revenue for the Magic by selling season tickets, premium suites, partial plans and group plans. Once the NBA season starts my game night responsibilities will consist of managing all personal accounts through the planning and coordinating of group events, conducting on-court tours for clients, and prospecting potential business around the arena. My goal is to work my way up in the sports industry and someday become a General Manager for an NBA team.How do you think Randolph prepared you for your where you are today?
Randolph offered me an opportunity to grow academically in an environment that provided structure and the freedom to succeed without limits. Transferring in from a public school I noticed right away that I was truly appreciated and wasn’t just a number anymore. My learning style always required more individualized attention and Randolph was able to provide that to me. I would like to make a special note of those who challenged me academically and physically by pushing me out of my comfort zone and having faith in me no matter what the odds were; Mr. Allen, Dr. Hulsey, Mrs. Hodges, Mrs. Dunar, Mrs. Rossuck, Coach Zavada and Coach Tim Moore. Please share a “fun fact” about yourself.
The Orlando Magic was my favorite team growing up as a child and getting the opportunity to work for this organization is my dream job.Congratulations, Seth Bangert '09, on a job well done!
