New Year, New Media Planner: Welcome Alec!

Our growing media team is excited to welcome Alec Cuthbert as our newest Media Planner.

Alec comes to KC Truth with substantial cred, having worked at FRWD@Bain where he learned everything he knows from our own Sr. Media Planner Anne Raymond and Media Director Alex Cullen. Throughout his early advertising and media career, Alec has earned deep experience planning and executing media across a wide variety of channels including OOH, CTV, paid search, paid social, organic social, programmatic display, video and native media. And while, he’s done his fair share of graphic design, working on branding, logos, and ad design, Alec enjoys working on paid search and programmatic the most.

Most recently Alec worked at UNRL, an athleisure clothing company based out of St. Paul, as a Marketing Coordinator where he got a taste of client-side design, marketing and branding. This experience gave him insight into how clients function and how agencies and clients can work better with one another to achieve results. His work at FRWD@Bain involved analyzing data, uncovering insights and executing on them to make small, daily moves that brought long-term success to the client. Much of his time was also spent as the point of contact with client teams where he managed day-to-day ad hoc requests as well as delivered on reporting cadences.

Outside of work, you can find Alec spending time with his partner Katie and their dog (quite the little troublemaker) Nash. You’ll frequently find them exploring a new dog walking path or park, hitting the soccer field together, or enjoying a nice Apothic red wine while watching the newest reality TV show. Alec played soccer in college and still plays to this day, though he’s retired from anything other than “beer leagues.”
