Meet Our Professional Team

 

 

Mark Fish

Manager, League Operations

 

Mark has been familiar face around the RA for the past 30 years.  
In 1992, Mark stepped into the newly created position of League Sport Coordinator. “I’ve always loved sports and have been active in them my whole life, whether playing them, coaching or being involved in the administrative side of things. This was just a natural fit.”
This past January, Mark successfully competed for the Manager, League Operations position vacated by Pat Coyne’s retirement.  Members can expect the same member-centric approach that has always been Mark’s hallmark. “I believe in integrity and accountability. I strongly believe in the principles of Fair Play and Good Sportsmanship, and I apply all of those values and principles to my work.”
When asked about his favourite part of working at the RA, Mark’s answer is no surprise. “The people, hands down. Not only am I fortunate to work with a great, dedicated group of colleagues, but I’m rewarded every day with being able to meet and get to know so many of the good people that come here to play. Our business is people, and it’s never lost on me how important building those relationships is.”  Mark enjoys the opportunity he has to experience the many different aspects of what he and his team do. 
 

 


Kevin Ferguson

Coordinator, League Operations

 

Kevin Ferguson is a coordinator of league operations, where he is involved with numerous sports, including beach volleyball, basketball, hockey, softball and various indoor sports. He has long been interested in sports, evidenced by the fact he chose to study recreation management and sports management at Algonquin College. After graduating, Kevin found himself at Bowls Canada, a national sport organization, which oversees bowling across the country. From there, he worked at the Sensplex, as well as organizing minor hockey tournaments. Currently at the RA continuing his passion for sports, Kevin is still able to say that the only non-sport related job he’s ever had was a season in a Beavertail stand.
