GORDON PURCHASE

Manager Sales and Operation Team, Alumni Facilities

Gordon has been in the events and hospitality industry for over 15 years, planning many events from small intimate celebrations to large multi-day conferences. His keen attention to detail, logistics background and overall love for organizing and creating efficient spaces has built a great network for our clients to tap into when looking for something new and unique. Gordon manages the sales and operation team for both our alumni facilities.

When he’s not organizing everyone else’s event, he’s probably planning his own or unwinding with a glass of scotch and a crossword puzzle. You may even find him on the golf course though I’m not sure you can consider him a “golfer”.
