Amir Durakovic

Assistant Account Manager

Hawthorne Strategy Group’s focus on building trusted relationships with clients in order to create effective campaigns was what most attracted Amir to the close-knit firm. He particularly appreciates the opportunity of learning from experienced colleagues and offering his unique perspectives to the development of strategic communications campaigns. Amir joined Hawthorne Strategy Group as an intern in 2016 and was brought on as a full time Assistant Account Manager in January 2017.


Prior to joining Hawthorne Strategy Group, Amir worked three as a marketing research professional at WatchLAB, a global research firm based in Chicago. During his time in marketing research, Amir assisted numerous Fortune 500 clients in meeting their local research needs. Although it began as a part-time college job, Amir continues to utilize the valuable professional experience of qualitative research and client communication.


Amir is looking forward to graduating from DePaul University in the summer of 2017 with a B.A. in Public Relations and Advertising and a minor in Marketing.


Outside of Hawthorne, Amir enjoys spending time with friends and family, participating in weekly basketball and softball leagues, and helping organize events for the Ulqini Association in Chicago – his local Albanian community organization.
