Alex Bacon

Assistant Account Manager

Alex was attracted to Hawthorne Strategy Group after learning about its tight-knit  family culture, and commitment to developing successful strategic communications plans for clients. Having learned about the opportunity to work closely with senior leaders on meaningful projects and take on challenging responsibilities, Alex knew he could call Hawthorne home.

Prior to joining Hawthorne Strategy Group, Alex started his career in strategic communications and government relations. He has held several roles at various public relations agencies throughout Chicago. During his tenure at these companies, Alex served clients in a number of areas such as law, healthcare, finance, technology, and consumer in both business-to-business and business-to-consumer communications – helping them craft strategic media relations strategies that reached real people.

Alex graduated from the Illinois Institute of Technology in 2016 with a B.S. in political science.

In his free time, Alex enjoys spending time with family and friends, weightlifting, reading, cooking, and volunteering. He volunteers for PRSA Chicago and Changing Worlds, where he heads public relations, media outreach, and donor and investor relations.
