Bozeman, MT – After nearly three years as VP of Global Strategy at MercuryCSC, Alexi Khajavi is stepping down August of this year, Jeff Welch, CEO of MercuryCSC, announced today.
“MercuryCSC has only gotten better with Alexi. We’ve expanded our client portfolio globally and we are internationally recognized as experts in travel and active lifestyle marketing to the emerging market of active, curious consumers. We’ll miss him and wish him all the best.”
Khajavi has led Mercury’s marketing and sales efforts; helping elevate MERCURYcsc’s brand recognition within travel and outdoor while getting the agency into a number of marquee pitches. Alexi brought onboard and helped develop marketing strategies for clients such as Costa Santa Elena, NOLS, Guacalito de la Isla, Sustainable Travel International, Discover Corps, The Wilderness Society, Hope Town Lodge and Audley Travel.
“This was a hard decision for me, as it has been an incredible experience,” said Khajavi. “Even before I joined MercuryCSC, I had a huge amount of admiration for their work, I have even more admiration now after working alongside the best creative minds in travel for some of the best clients in the industry. Yet, after more than a decade of being an entrepreneur at travel and lifestyle start-ups, I couldn’t resist the urge to go back to my professional roots. Plus, the agency is now internationally recognized for its creative marketing and thought leadership in connecting brands and destinations with the emerging market of Geotravelers, so the timing felt right.”
Alexi will continue to support MercuryCSC during the transition and as an Advisor to Jeff Welch and the Management.
