Marley Kirkpatrick

Senior Account Manager


Marley graduated from Carleton University in 2016 with a Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Communications. She spent a semester at Swansea University in Wales, gaining an international perspective on the field of media and communications. Over the course of her degree, she developed strong writing, creative, and project management skills, which she’s put to work in her role as an account executive since joining Alphabet® in 2016.

Prior to joining the Alphabet® team, Marley worked for retail startup terra20. During her more than three years there, she saw the company grow from an idea to a successful brick-and-mortar store. She worked in a variety of roles, from the marketing team to the sales floor, developing an affinity for fast-paced projects and tasks.

Marley’s passion for learning, travel, and culture helps her bring a multi-dimensional approach to her work at Alphabet®. She continues to learn by attending industry events including Advertising Week New York and the Canadian Meetings and Events Expo (CMEE) to ensure she’s always on the cutting edge for her clients, which include Minto Communities Ottawa, Kingston Accommodation Partners, Tourism Kingston, Regional Tourism Organization 9, Kingston Economic Development Corporation, and the St. Laurent Shopping Centre.
