Alex Plaxen
ALEX PLAXEN, PRESIDENT and founder of Little Bird Told Media, is a strategic
partner of MPI Potomac for graphic design, providing all of the eye-catching event logos and
other graphics you see throughout the year. Alex also served as the marketing director from
2015-2017, and before that he was a marketing/PR committee member and committee chair.
We wanted to find out a little more about Alex:
WHAT'S THE ONE THING THAT PEOPLE WOULD
BE SURPRISED TO KNOW ABOUT YOU?
I used to be a set designer for film. I got to work on the Oscar-nominated
best feature film "Milk" as the art department intern when I was in college.

WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE VACATION SPOT?
Right now, it's absolutely San Francisco. I went there for
undergrad, so it's always been nice to go back to visit. It's my favorite
because my sister lives there with my adorable niece and nephew!

AND FINALLY, BACK TO BUSINESS, WHAT ARE SOME
RECENT CAREER HIGHLIGHTS YOU CAN SHARE?
I was named to a Connect Association 40 under 40 in 2017, as well as a PCMA 20 in their
Twenties 2016. I was also top social media influencer at Inbound 2015 (14,000 attendees),
Inbound 2016 (17,000 attendees) and Dreamforce 2015 (135,000 attendees). ■
