Chief Creative and Marketing Officer
Alex is a Global Chief Creative and Marketing Officer who has worked extensively in over 24 markets, including the UK, France, Brazil, Russia, China, Indonesia, India, and Hong Kong, to name a few. His career began in Dallas 20 years ago working for The Richards Group (Chick-fil-A, Home Depot, Taco Cabana) as a Graphic Design Specialist, and since then went on to become the Executive Creative Director for Slingshot (Jack Daniels, Dr Pepper, Greyhound, Wyndham Hotels), and then, as SVP/Creative Director at the storied Martin Agency (GEICO, UPS, Walmart, Discover Card, X-Games).
An opportunity to live and work in London brought Alex to EF Education First as the Global Creative and Brand Director, and after six incredible years, he decided to return to Texas. He is now fulfilling a life-long dream of working with his brother, Gordy, to help build what will be the most trusted and respected insurance and financial services brand in the country.
