His responsibilities also included scheduling and supervising facility usage for events, composing and distributing marketing materials targeted at driving attendance for home events, and developing marketing plans as well as starting new initiatives.  He also worked with SAA and the Heron Society Board of Directors to direct athletics as well as fundraise.

Fisk's experience in college athletics also extends into the NAIA and NCAA Division I ranks.  In 2011, Fisk served as the Director of Marketing and Operations for the Southern States Athletic Conference.  One of his main areas was managing staff to create and produce a conference television show that aired in over 12 million homes.  Prior to his time with the SSAC, Fisk spent two years working at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where he worked his way from an Athletic Department Intern to the Director of Development and Member Relations at the College Sport Research Institute, all while earning his master’s degree in Athletic Administration.
