Alison is equal parts big picture visionary and finely tuned activator.
As the leader of C-K’s Account Management team, she uses those finely-honed skills to guide our client accounts and account teams as they navigate today’s complex marketing ecosystem. Aligning the team under the value of proactive account stewardship, C-K’s account group focuses on building solutions and work that create real business results for our clients.
Alison also heads up the multi-faceted Cotton Council International account which finds her working across continents with key supply chain members to promote the export of U.S. cotton. Prior to C-K, she spent six years leading the largest office of the global design firm, Brandimage. During that time she refocused the office on brand building and client service to successfully navigate through the recession.
She began her career at Foote, Cone & Belding working on SC Johnson, Kraft and Cadbury Schweppes. At JWT, she partnered with her clients to reinvigorate iconic brands like Ritz Crackers, introduce purposeful new brands like U by Kotex and unify ubiquitous global brands like Western Union.
Alison graduated from the Indiana University Honors Program with both her Bachelors and MBA degrees—she completed both in just five years. Alison lives with her husband in Glenview, Ilinois, where she is currently working on her golf, paddle and pickleball games in her spare time.
