MEET THE #CHROMECREW
ALEX: FOUNDER & CEO
Alex founded Chrome City in 2014 as the result of her desire to tell a deeper story on behalf of her clients and align partnerships for like-minded brands. Previously, she served as the Director of Communications for Blast Marketing & PR where she led numerous local and national PR & Marketing campaigns for a variety of hospitality clients. Her love of media is evident in the breadth of roles she has previously held over the past decade ranging from media strategist to author, event planner to advertising executive. Born and raised in San Diego, Alex learned the ropes of the PR industry from her father Tony, who owned OTT PR for a majority of her life. In 2011, after working at a fashion and lifestyle magazine followed by a renowned public affairs firm, she left everything to push herself to new heights in Chicago. Her greatest joy comes from propelling Chicago’s creative community through strategic communications.

As Director of Operations, Anthony is charged with setting, establishing and measuring Chrome City’s performance goals and objectives.

Additionally, he was responsible for assisting and setting standard operating procedures and logistics for the team. Since joining Chrome City, he has revamped the operations for all on-boarding processes for both internal employees and Chrome City’s clients, partners, and collaborators. He also coordinates support services in order to meet objectives and expectations to ensure Chrome City's continued growth and success. When he is not doing Chrome City work, you will find him exploring the city looking for the best local IPAs and Italian Beef sandwiches, or mastering his craft as a basketball coach.
