I know you are not going to believe this but yes, the team at Velocity Agency is still growing. We are thrilled to introduce you to Alison Pitre, our newest account manager.
Alison has lived in the New Orleans area for her entire life. Alison attended Ursuline Academy and University of New Orleans where she was an Art History Major. While, she may be one of our newest team members, she has been friends with the company’s founder, Robert Berning III, for over 15 years.
Alison started her career working for a local jewelry/artist, Mignon Faget doing research and development. Shortly before film started to boom in New Orleans, Alison found herself involved with it all. She started to work as a freelance set decorator, writer, and producer. Alison has worked on local and national ad campaigns such as Popeyes, Blue Runner Beans, Audubon Institute, Luzianne tea and Piccadilly Cafeteria to name a few. She has also worked on educational films and local documentaries.
Prior to coming to Velocity Alison was employed at Planet Beach Corporate for 2 years where she was the Director of Marketing.
This wouldn’t be a blog about a new employee without some fun facts. Alison loves animals, especially dogs. She has 4 rescues. She had a pet rabbit for 14 years that lived in her home like a dog; it was litter trained. This wasn’t any ordinary rabbit, it could deal cards, wow. In addition to her pets she enjoys fishing, cooking and eating, yoga and hanging out with her family.
We are thrilled to have Alison on our team.
