Welcome to Bounce, Ben Madgen!
We’re very excited to announce that Ben Madgen has joined the Bounce team as our Corporate Partnerships Officer!
Ben is a former professional basketball player, with successful stints in both the Australian NBL and various European leagues. After securing the 2010 Rookie of the Year Award with the Sydney Kings, Ben was named Most Improved Player and All-NBL First Team in 2013. He also led the NBL in scoring during the 2012/13 season and was named in the Sydney Kings 25th Anniversary Team in the same year. After leaving the Kings in 2015, Ben played for multiple teams in Belgium, Lithuania and Germany before returning to the NBL with the inaugural South East Melbourne team last season.
Outside of basketball, Ben holds a Master’s of Business Administration from the Macquarie Graduate School of Management. He has also launched a partnership with The Children’s Hospital and Westmead and Sydney Children’s Hospital Randwick focusing on children with long-term illnesses. Dubbed “The Madgen’s Message of Hope,” the program included hospital visits and memorable gameday experiences.
We’re looking forward to working with Ben on some exciting upcoming programs! Make sure to stay tuned through our newsletter, blog posts and social media.
