Patrice Culligan has joined the staff of the Alexandria Times as an advertising account executive for the company.
Culligan brings more than 18 years of advertising and marketing experience to the Times. Most recently, she was vice president, marketing director of Pharmaceutical Media in New York City, an independent firm representing leading medical publishers and medical associations.
Culligan also served as publisher of Physicians Weekly in New York and national account manager at the International Medical News Group.
Culligan is new to the Alexandria area and is looking forward to being a part of the community.
The economy is at a low ebb and provides little natural help for local companies. I am very excited about working with all types of businesses in Alexandria, National Harbor and along the Potomac to improve their exposure to the premium demographic that the Alexandria Times services, Culligan said.
Culligan and her husband live in Capitol Hill and have a combined family of five sons and a daughter.
