Growing up as an Army Brat who completed 10 moves around the world before the age of 15, Alex Jayjock is no stranger to change, flexibility, and resiliency. She uses lessons learned from these experiences, along with a passion for competition and a love for the built environment, to craft unique strategies that help design and construction firms achieve their marketing and business development goals.
Throughout her 15+ year career in the AEC industry, Alex has advised clients that range from startups to international powerhouses on strategic plans, project pursuits, defining value propositions, developing business development processes, and more. Whether helping a firm break into a new geographic market or coaching a ‘must win’ interview, Alex thrives on challenging firms to develop client-driven messaging that answers the simple question of ‘so what?’.
In 2018, Alex founded Dragonfly AEC Consulting, driven by a belief that the role of the AEC marketing and BD professional has changed. Alex and the Dragonfly team work toward a vision of being the premier resource for marketing and BD leadership in the design and construction industry.
Dedicated to a ‘work hard, play hard’ mantra, Alex loves spending time with her two kids, golfing, hiking, enjoying an afternoon at a brewery, or a lazy Sunday morning spent at the lake.
