Alex License

Social Media Account Executive

Role:

I work across several social brands focusing on the content side of things. Keeping our feed relevant with all the up to date news and on the odd occasion trying (and failing) to be witty.

Who inspires you in business?

Nobody really inspires me in business to be quite honest, I think you should pave your own way in life. If you work hard enough you will get to where you want to be.

What has been your biggest achievement in your career?

I would say that my biggest achievement at CheckdMedia would be starting off as a writer with little experience, being identified as someone who would thrive on the social channels to being promoted to a social media executive. On the side I’ve also been running a Love Island twitter account which has grown around 4,000 followers in the first month, and has reached over 22 million people in that month.

What do you do in your spare time?

I’ve been a Leeds United fan all my life for my sins, so you’ll find me wherever they are playing. I’ve had a season ticket for years and go to the majority of away games. I’ve also recently got back into the gym so Im currently in the process of delaying the inevitable dadbod which is pending
