Alexandra MarchioneBusiness Development Manager

Alex, originally from New York, traded in skyscrapers for mountains when moving to Pennsylvania to pursue her degrees in Mass Communications and Marketing at Bloomsburg University. She wrote for the online news portal BU Now while attending Bloomsburg, and later pursued marketing careers that fused her passions for writing, traveling, and working with people internationally.

Alex has worked and traveled extensively throughout the world, and is continuously on the look-out for her next adventure. She spent some time backpacking Asia and teaching English to Kindergarten children in Chiang Mai, Thailand. Alex later made her way to Australia, where she worked at the Melbourne Marriott assisting people traveling for business and tourists, alike. Her favorite memory while living in the land down under was getting to be a tourist herself and taking a road trip down the east coast with her friends.

Alex is excited to be back in New York and to be part of the Marketing Challenges Team. She loves that her work allows her to bring the globe back home! She is thrilled to work with colleagues from different continents whom expose her to new cultures and cuisines. She also appreciates that her work enables her to learn more about destination marketing and global events.

In her free time, Alex enjoys being outdoors and partaking in her favorite activities such as hiking, riding bikes, rollerblading, as well as taking weekend trips when she can! A self-professed “foodie,” Alex also loves to cook and check out local restaurants.
