Newport Beach, CA: After five years of learning every aspect of the fight promotions business, as well as learning it from your promoter father, Drew Englebrecht was named Vice President of Marketing & Operations for Roy Englebrecht Promotions, it was announced today.
“Drew has been our Operations & Marketing Manager since 2008, and I just felt that he deserved this promotion and position,” said Roy Englebrecht. “Working for me in not the easiest thing in the world, so that along might qualify him for a promotion, but seriously Drew has really grown in his knowledge of the promotions business, and I continue to hear from our fans, sponsors, and vendors about what a great job he is doing and what a great attitude he has.”
“Like my father I am a jack of many things and I can’t imagine not working in the fight game,” said the 34 year old Englebrecht. “Every time the office phone rings or a new email comes in it’s an opportunity for me to shine! How many people can say that? Growing up in Orange County and especially Newport Beach, and designing everything from my own clothes, to my own art, to writing my own music, just keeps me finding new ways to make sure our Fight Club OC shows and our entire fight promotions business remains a leader in our business.”
Englebrecht is a graduate of Corona del Mar High School, and received a sociology degree from Vanguard University in 2005. He was the drummer in Red Line 5, one of the most successful garage bands to come out of Newport Beach in years.
