Do you celebrate your half birthday with the same enthusiasm as your actual birthday? Do you love a good karaoke night? Are you more prepared for the zombie apocalypse than you’d like to admit?
If you answered yes to the above, it’s because you’re probably Alison McElwee, Account Director at Sköna.
Role at Sköna: Account Director
Originally from: Chi-town! Chicago, Illinois.
In my spare time, I like to: Spin – as in stationary cycling, not twirling – hike, sew something fun, hang with friends, be outside, re-organize the house.
My motto (or favorite quote): “If you fail to plan, then plan to fail”
An interesting fact about me: I was born on my great grandmother’s 100th birthday on Friday the 13th.
My recommendation to others is: Let’s just be nice to each other.
What does a brave brand mean to you?
A brave brand is a brand that isn’t afraid to take risks, speak out for what they feel is right and make decisions based
on feelings & knowledge and not on what everyone else is doing.
My first impression of Sköna: Love the team! And what does Swedish influence even mean!?
My later impression of Sköna: Love the team!
A brand I would love to work with and why: I would like to work with a brand that is confident, knows what they want and sees their agency as part of their team, and seeks their expertise! Or a brand that is eco-friendly.
