There are people who are simply passionate about technology, and then there are people who are passionate about using technology to solve a real problem. The latter describes Alex Scavo, a driven Product Manager who has helped countless organizations leverage technology to effectively and efficiently achieve their goals. In his role at Own The Room, Alex harnesses that same passion -- and his background in tech and communications -- to ensure that our training products are the absolute best they can be for our clients.
After graduating from the University of South Carolina with a degree in History and Criminal Justice, Alex entered a career in technology sales and public relations. As a Public Relations Account Manager at A. Brown Olmstead Associates, he supported clients in industries ranging from healthcare and sustainability to legal and social causes. He later worked as the Sales and Marketing Manager for beverage technology startup, Table Tap, before joining Apple as a Business Expert. Coincidentally, that’s when we first knew Alex would be a great fit for our team; while at Apple he supported all of our business technology needs.
In his spare time, Alex is a dedicated volunteer, even receiving an Outstanding Achievement Award for his service with the Atlanta Legal Aid Society’s Georgia Senior Legal Hotline. He’s also an avid sports fan, coaching intramural basketball in college, managing a youth basketball league for his former high school, and always cheering on his home teams, the Atlanta Braves, Falcons, and Hawks. Alex lives in Charleston, South Carolina, where he enjoys exploring the Lowcountry’s many parks and beaches with his loyal Gordon Setter, Bane, by his side.
