Rebecca Beacham ’16

Occupation: Manager of Event Services
“It’s been quite the ride.”
That sentiment from 2016 North Greenville University alum Rebecca Beacham is shared by millions of Texas Rangers fans across the nation following the team’s first World Series title.
With the championship parade in the books and the banner on the way, Beacham, who serves as the Manager of Event Services for the Rangers, said reality is still sinking in.
“It still hasn’t really sunk in. I’m sitting in an office looking out at the field, and you see ‘World Champions’ on all the screens. It doesn’t feel real,” she said. “I never really saw this being a part of my career, but it has been incredible, and I feel so blessed and lucky to be a part of this organization and the team that we have.”
In her role with the team, Beacham oversees special events in the ballpark, including concerts, graduation, private events, corporate events, and more.
“It feels like we have our hands in a little bit of everything,” she said. “There’s a lot of variety, and we’re always doing something a little different.”
“The postseason was crazy,” Beacham continued. “Once you get to that stage, you could play one or two games and be out of it, or you can go all the way to the World Series. There’s just no telling what your month is going to look like. It’s really challenging, but it’s a good challenge and something that’s a lot of fun.”
After graduating from NGU with a degree in Sport Management, Beacham began working with a local non-profit in a leadership role before ultimately pursuing her Master of Business Administration.
It was then that she decided to make a change.
“I was ready for something different, so I started looking for various opportunities,” she said. “I took an entry-level role with an MBA, which may not be for everyone, but I wanted to start fresh and be a part of this organization. I’m so glad I did.”
Having reached a milestone in her career, Beacham offered some simple advice for those looking to pursue a similar path.
“Get plugged in wherever you can, as soon as you can,” she said. “Use your education and the skills you have, and your value will speak for itself.”
