Alex McDonald

Alex is a qualified accountant and brings over 25 years of AFL experience as the Managing Director of Hemisphere AFL. He has the distinction of being the number one AFL draft pick in 1988. After seven seasons at the Hawks, Alex finished his career at Collingwood. Crucially Alex knows what it’s like to be a player at the elite level. He’s even a member of a select group of families who have had three brothers play over 100 AFL games. His brothers, Anthony and James, both played for Melbourne.

Hemisphere’s philosophy of maximising on field and off field opportunities is built out of our desire to build lasting relationships with every talent. Combining 18 years of industry experience with his football career, Alex is perfectly equipped to guide talent through the rigours of life in the AFL.
