Alex Hayes

Who am I: Commercial Manager

Born in the UK and grew up in a small-town in England called Welwyn Garden City (Close to London). I spent my childhood playing all types of sport, but football, golf and boxing took my interest. A particular highlight was playing football at Wembley stadium and walking up the famous steps.

I came to Australia on a short term secondment and quickly took to the Brisbane lifestyle that I’ve called home for the past 10 years. My family was not impressed but have learnt to appreciate the Australian holidays.

I met my beautiful partner during my time in Brisbane, and lucky enough to call her my wife, with an amazing destination wedding in Vietnam. Our love of travel continues to take us to all parts of the world, and we enjoy taking in the different cultures’, architecture, cuisine and local wine.

In my spare time you will find me exploring the local sights, chilling with friends, or watching the Brisbane Roar. I appreciate a good craft beer followed by a red wine to top off the night.

My favourite Australian destination is Rainbow beach, with its change of pace and local beach vibe.

That’s enough about me and I will leave you with a couple of quotes that I live by:

“The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.” -Nelson Mandela

“You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.” -Wayne Gretzky
