After his tenure as Chairman ends following the tournament,
Markham looks forward to spending more time with his
family. “This is the first year that I have not been able to
coach all of my kid’s sports,” he says. “I love coaching.”
Of course, Markham will find time for fly-fishing, one of
his great passions, and golf. “I learned to fly-fish from my
uncle in Colorado,” he says. “It’s one of the only things I like
to do by myself, as most of my other hobbies are all social.
I love the quietness and peacefulness of the mountains.”
As for the industrial sector, Markham sees tremendous
opportunities ahead. “Our team is in a good spot with the
addition of Will Strong and Phil Haenel,” he says. “Phoenix
is really set-up for a great run.”
Markham is also honing
his craft as a member of SIOR (Society of Industrial/Office
Realtors). “I like what the organization stands for and how
they do business.”
As Chairman, Markham’ s efforts
for this year’ s tournament, from an expanded Bay Club
area, 10 new 16th hole skyboxes and eight Bird’ s Nest
headliner acts, will be on display for patrons.
Open, Markham wants to be remembered as a good dad,
good friend and a guy who cared about his community.
“In the end, life is short, surround yourself
with people you enjoy and have as much
fun as you can!
“We really have the perfect squad,” he says.
