Alexis Favis - 2018 / 07/31/2018 6:13 pm

Alexis FavisAlexis Favis was born in the Philippines and immigrated to the US with her mother as a baby. Their first home in the states was Tucson, but it wasn’t until 1992, when her family put down permanent roots in the Old Pueblo. The oldest of 3, she is a natural born leader and mentor. 

While still in high school she started working at a small arcade in the mall, doing entry level work. Fast forward 6 years of graduating high school, putting herself through college at Pima and working full time at GameWorks, she found herself excelling at business operations and became the youngest general manager in company history. The experience was formative. She learned first-hand the power of building a sense of place, community, and her interest in digital marketing and advertising grew.

Alexis continued to pursue her education and graduated from the University of Arizona with a Bachelor’s Degree in Commerce in 2010. While at the U of A, she also started a career at Madden Media. Like GameWorks, Madden fostered continued education and community involvement, which inspired her to become an AD2 member in 2009.

Alexis is now a Senior Account Manager with Madden Media where she focuses on developing omnichannel marketing programs for destination marketing organizations around the country. She is a public speaker for numerous DMOs and small businesses locally and nationally. Sharing her knowledge and staying active in young professional initiatives to grow and attract talent to Tucson continues to be her passion.

Alexis served on the Ad 2 board in a variety of positions including, Events Chair, Fundraising Chair, Public Service Chair, Secretary/Treasurer, Vice President and two terms as President. She has served on the local American Advertising Federation Tucson board and on the ADDY Awards committee and nationally with AAF as a blogger during their annual conference for three years running, as well as participating in district and regional events.
