Savvy and in the know, Alissa P. may be new to the CMAccess candidate list but she has a wealth of knowledge that will help build any company’s e-commerce enterprises.
Alissa recently ended a 10 year career as senior art director with a major clothing line’s website. Her careful attention to details helped to develop homepages, online advertising and marketing, mobile sites and social networks for the company. Managing e-commerce design teams in two locations, Alissa utilized CMAccess to fill contract positions. Seeing first hand the quality designers that CMAccess supplied and having built a relationship with their team, Alissa knew she wanted the group to help with her job search.
Her dream position would be in a smaller company where Alissa can really participate in many different areas including designing — print or online she enjoys it all. Alissa would love to bring her 20 years of experience to help take a company to the next level, while acting as a mentor to new designers.
When she’s not working, Alissa relaxes through horseback riding. Though she has been competitive in her past —she began riding at 8-years-old — Alissa enjoys the sport recreationally these days.
Her attention to details and ability to focus on the task at hand makes Alissa our top talent for the month.

The mobile application world is exploding. More and more users are turning to smartphones and tablets to consume content, whether on the go or on the couch. As a result, companies’ mobile marketing budgets have increased and will continue to rise.
“If your site is not optimized for mobile, your customers will go to your competitors. Consumers do not have the patience to wait on bad experiences.”
– Deborah Hall, Mobile Commerce Outlook 2011
