Alex Hunt

Account Executive at The Tombras Group
Atlanta , United States

Summary

I love the innovative, fast-paced, and competitive nature of the advertising industry and I'm eager to learn everything I can about it. I am particularly interested in new business, account management, and account planning and getting to know clients and consumers on a deeper level. I want to learn more about individuals and what makes them unique, taking consumer research beyond focus groups and surveys and knowing people on a personal level.
