Content Strategy Manager

“Great content always provides value for consumers as well as brands: an intellectual or emotional connection that resonates beneath the surface level. I love seeing work that delivers brand messaging in a way that is organic – and The Drum Content Awards are the finest showcase for this.”

Alex is a content strategy manager at Facebook, where he works across the company's ads products in London. He was part of the team that launched Creative Hub: a platform that enables content creators to experiment quickly and share mockups of their creative work.

Alex has worked in content-related fields for 15+ years and joined Facebook from PayPal. He also co-founded the content strategy start-up Angry Young Men – but despite this, remains a friendly chap at heart.
