The risk taker
Alex Marsay, who is a technical marketing analyst at BrightRock, started off her life in the obscure town of Empangeni before moving to Durban at a very young age. She moved to Joburg when she was eight years old so no-one understands why she still supports the Sharks – at this point, neither does she. Alex had a go at various degrees at three different tertiary institutions but couldn’t settle on what she wanted to do when she was big. It was when she was studying Chemistry that someone poached her and introduced her to life insurance as a consultant. She was at the same company for nine years in different roles including consultant, trainer and product specialist. She is a risk taker and has been known to wear pink nail polish with red shoes. Alex and her husband, Michael, have two children, Olivia and Joseph.
