Account Executive for the Windy City Bulls
Nate Rodriguez MSc ’21 works for the Windy City Bulls basketball team as an account executive. His main role is to promote the team by forming relationships with season ticket holders and organizing group outings.

“After completing the Carthage Sports Management program, you don’t just come out a better sports professional — you come out a better person.”
What have you enjoyed most about your career?
“The unique aspect of working in the G-League (NBA minor league) is that everyone does everything. I’ve helped set up our arena, assisted with merchandising, and led community engagement events through local chambers and Gus T. Bull (our mascot) appearances.”
How did Carthage prepare you?
“The Sports Management program is designed to make well-rounded professionals ready to enter the sports industry. Classes in emotional intelligence, team building, and leadership prepared me just as much.”
