Leadership Capital Group, a premier global executive search firm, announced today the expansion of its Advisory Board with the appointment of Alexandra Aleskovsky, a veteran senior executive with experience across consumer facing industries in traditional and digital companies ranging from start-ups to the Fortune 500.
Alexandra Aleskovsky has been a leader and pioneer in the digital space since the late 90s and has led the development, transformation and growth of advertising, subscription and e-commerce businesses. Alexandra has built and led teams in marketing, PR, market research, editorial, product, creative, user experience, e-commerce, business development, web technology, and customer operations throughout her career.
Over the course of Ms. Aleskovsky’s career, she has served as the President of eScholastic, Scholastic’s Digital Division, ran the WeightWatchers Online business, served as the CMO of ClubMom/CafeMom, General Manager of iVillage.com, and held positions in international business development and brand management at Colgate-Palmolive and P&G. She began her career in investment banking, working for Merrill Lynch Capital Markets. Alexandra serves on the Board of Directors and provides advisory work to a number of start-up companies through her company, the DigitalShop. She holds a BBA in Finance from the University of Texas at Austin and an MBA from the Harvard Business School.
“Alexandra brings unparalleled experience to the Board of Leadership Capital Group. Her customer-facing digital capabilities and industry experience will be a great addition to our growing team. We expect Alexandra’s subject matter knowledge to complement that of the firm’s consultants and provide great value-add to our human capital solutions delivered to consumer-facing companies and industries. We are ecstatic to have Alexandra as a part of Leadership Capital Group team,” said the firm’s CEO Marc Lewis.
Alexandra articulated, “Marc and I were introduced by a mutual professional contact for whom Marc and his team recently conducted a highly successful senior executive search in the online and multi-channel music business. We quickly understood each other, and I was impressed by his and the team’s passion for the business challenges that companies face, and how the firm’s methodologies and human capital solutions help their clients address challenges and create market wins. The team takes search to another level – as innovators who bring diversity of thought to a normally traditional business. As a business leader, I was able to identify with their passions and am attracted by the mission of this special growing international company. I look forward to becoming an integral part of the team and leveraging my expertise as they build out their practices.”
