Alex recently joined Forrester Research, where he currently serves as a Sr. Consultant in Marketing & Strategy. Prior to Forrester, Alex was the global Director of Marketing & Social Media Analytics at Marriott International, where he established a new social analytics practice built on his earlier work at Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc.
