Allison’s mission is to enable entrepreneurs to focus on what they do best by alleviating the distraction of projects they ‘should’ be doing.
Having run her own children’s apparel company and ecommerce business for seven years, Allison understands the tremendous responsibility shouldered by business owners. There are always new ideas to pursue and projects you “should” be doing, leaving you little time to do what actually makes your business the best.
And with over 15 years experience in growing businesses, Allison is the person you can trust to execute the important projects that you do not have the capacity to do yourself.
In 2017, Allison launched eponymous special project execution agency.
Prior to launching her agency, Allison spent a year at Faherty, a lifestyle casual clothing brand you may have seen recently in Forbes or The New York Times. While at Faherty, Allison worked directly with the CEO on the company’s highest-priority initiatives across marketing, social media, store events, and product expansion. She joined as a Special Projects Consultant and was promoted to company’s first-ever Vice President 6 months later.
Allison spent seven years running Bundle, a Soho store and e-commerce site broadly recognized by press, stylists and parents as the destination for stylish children’s clothes and gifts.
