A 20 year veteran in the industry, Alex Stowe started his career with a company that primarily focused on the pharmaceutical industry and overseas production. Over the course of his seven years with Brand Fuel he has worked his way up through the ranks, beginning as a production coordinator, then moving to the creative department, and eventually becoming an account manager for some of Brand Fuel’s top clients.
Growing up in Gastonia, NC, he was always involved with sports and outdoor activities and enjoyed music and the arts. After graduating from Hunter Huss High School he followed in the steps on his Father and Grandfather, becoming the third generation in his family to graduate from North Carolina State University.
Alex still loves to cheer on the Wolfpack and continues to be very active through running and playing soccer and basketball. He also enjoys going to see live music and is a devoted volunteer of Band Together. While he hates the taste of cheese, he loves Cheez-its. So much so that he dressed up as human-sized Cheez-its box one year for Halloween. He can neither confirm nor deny whether he still has it in his closet….
