Equipped with a decade of communications industry experience, a passion for creative storytelling and a love for tacos, Alicia Downard seamlessly integrates into the Red Fan team as our supervisor of client services.
Hailing from the Dallas/Fort Worth area, Downard is a Texan at heart, which shows in her passion for supporting local and emerging businesses and an appreciation of Texas film and history. She has led public relations teams for Gartner’s Digital Markets unit, overseeing strategy, brand marketing and PR campaigns for Capterra, GetApp and Software Advice. Prior to Gartner, Downard worked at the Office of the Texas Governor, where she managed the Texas Film Commission’s community outreach program and served as the division spokesperson. She also helmed media relations for the Texas Historical Commission, a serendipitous factoid considering Red Fan offices out of a state-recognized historical home.
Downard was drawn to Red Fan’s talented team, collaborative environment and impressive client portfolio. Outside of Red Fan, she can be found enjoying oysters on Austin patios with her husband and their dog, Samson.
