A hard worker, dedicated family man and passionate sports enthusiast, Alan Livengood grew up in a military family and traveled to many different countries growing up including Turkey, Greece, Germany and England.
“While moving around so much then might have been a challenge, I believe it has helped shape who I am today and I am thankful for those experiences,” said Alan.
The youngest of three children, Alan’s mom is originally from Norwich, England where she met Alan’s father while he was stationed there in the Air Force.
Married to his beautiful wife Kim, the couple has three sons Zechariah, Sam and Travis. Alan graduated from Chaparral High School in 1991 where he played trumpet in band and was also active in the Naval Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps program.
In his spare time Alan enjoys spending time with his family, playing softball with his wife, going to dinner and the movies. An avid sports fan and a big supporter of the Dallas Cowboys and Los Angeles Dodgers, Alan’s son is a huge Anaheim Ducks fan so the family is excited about possibly getting an NHL team in Las Vegas.
With a bucket list to see games in all the Major League Baseball ballparks, Alan and his wife have been to 17 of the 30 stadiums so far. “My favorite ballpark so far is PNC Park in Pittsburgh,” said Alan. “In addition to softball I enjoy playing golf and spending time going to movies and concerts and relaxing with friends, family and co-workers.”
Alan also loves all of the latest gadgets in technology like smartphones, tablets and smartwatches. “I love all the fun and conveniences they enable,” said Alan.
A dedicated employee, Alan started with Prime Cable back in 1992 and stayed when Cox bought the system in 1998. “From the beginning, I’ve worked hard and taken advantage of many opportunities,” said Alan. “I’ve been fortunate to move from a frontline employee into various leadership roles over the past 24 years which has helped me tremendously in the role I am in today.”
As the Director of Field Operations for Residential Field Services for Cox Communications, Las Vegas, Alan leads an excellent team of over 140 people consisting of leaders and technicians who install and repair Cox products & Services. “My goal is to ensure my team is positioned to provide a great experience for our customers and exceed their expectations,” said Alan.
For Alan, a typical day consists of email and meetings with leaders both locally and in Atlanta where the company’s corporate office is located. “I spend time working on strategy, special projects and the roll out of new products and services to our customers,” said Alan. “The part I enjoy most is working daily with our leaders and technicians, whether it be helping them grow and develop or working with them on various tasks, it’s one of the things I look forward to each day.”
Alan volunteers in support of Cox Charities and their partnership with the United Way. For the last 12 years he’s been part of the Cox Charities Golf tournament committee that has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to help our community. Additionally he gives of his time and finances.
“I believe that I am very fortunate and feel that if you are able to give you should do so and be thankful that you can,” said Alan. “If everyone gave something, whether it be time or money, we could make life better for many of those less fortunate.”
