Spotlighting Associate Director of Digital Shelf Strategy Alex Strong

Why do you love working with Alex?
Alex is dependable, consistent, wicked-smart and if that weren't enough he's also incredibly funny. I appreciate how level-headed he is, and how he is able to see both the big-picture of a challenge, while also being able to get down to the minute detail. Alex is also consistently there to lend a hand whenever an odd request comes over, or if he knows that there is something that he can take on to lighten the load. I don't know how many times, he's reached out to say "do you want me to handle that?" but somehow he always knows where he might be needed and that is priceless.
—Alea Redetzke, Director Strategic Planning

What’s something Alex does better than anyone else?
Alex is such a wealth of knowledge in not only digital shelf work but all e-commerce. He's always on the hunt for new tools and resources our team can use to be better. Not only that, he's great at finding and closing new business and advocating for our team across AUC.
—Tyler Langan, Sr. Manager Marketing
