02 Sep Get to Know Force: Alicia Brooks
Each week, we’ll be highlighting a key Force Marketing team member here on the blog. Get to know our team a little better, starting today with Director of OEM Relationships Alicia Brooks!
Q. What’s your role at Force, and what does it entail?
I’m the Director of OEM Relationships, and I am responsible for the development and growth, campaign implementation, and performance tracking of direct mail, email and digital campaigns for our Tier II Associations. My main clients right now are Chevrolet, Ford & Chrysler.
Q. What’s your favorite thing about what you do here?
My favorite thing about my current position is having the opportunity to work with associations at a higher level and designing campaigns to assist in the OEM’s overall marketing effort. Every day is something different and I get to wear many hats, so it keeps things interesting!
Q. Tell us a little bit about yourself outside of work.
Outside of work I spend as much time as possible with my husband, new baby, family & friends. I have a 5 1/2 month old named Preston (and I guarantee he’s one of the cutest things you’ll ever see)! In my spare time, if I ever have any, I have also owned and operated an Etsy shop for about 5 years where I have tripled my sales year-over-year. I also occasionally coordinate weddings!
Q. What’s your dream travel destination, or your favorite place you’ve ever traveled?
I’ve always wanted to go on a Mediterranean cruise! Thinking of maybe booking one for our anniversary in March and finally going!
Favorite place I’ve traveled was Scotland; it so beautiful!
Q. What’s your dream vehicle?
I’ve always wanted a black Range Rover with tan interior like the Cohens had on The OC.
Q. Who would play you in the movie of your life?
Would have to go with Reese Witherspoon. She’s blonde, southern and sassy. Or Leanne Rimes, I have been told I look like her weekly since I was about 12.
Q. What’s a piece of advice you would give a new employee at Force?
Hard work pays off. This is a great place to work, and they really care about their employees. It helps too that these are some of the best coworkers you could ever hope for!
Q. What’s your favorite quote?
Always believe something wonderful is going to happen. Even with all the ups and downs, never take a day for granted. Cherish the little things and hug the ones you love.
Q. Any weird talents or facts about you?
I was a competitive figure skater growing up (in Georgia!) and used to be a Professional Cheerleader/Ice Girl for the Atlanta Thrashers ice hockey team. I also broke 3 bones before the age of 5, one of which put me in a body cast from the waist down!Q. Anything else you’d like people to know?
I’m a very open person and love to help others. So anything you need/want to know, just come ask
