Alana Reid

Branding Consultant, Student Of Life, and Accountant in Toronto, Ontario, Canada

I am described as a ‘think outside of the box’ personal/business brand strategist with the ability to analyze a financial report like no other. My ideal environments have always been fast paced and creatively challenging.

While studying Accounting at George Brown College I worked at BMW Toronto in administration. There I was exposed to luxury retail at its finest, and successfully supported a talented sales team for 4 years. BMW’s male-dominated team eventually laid the foundation for my business, 7Figures. Created in 2009, 7Figures was designed to support successful busy clientele with their style and shopping needs.

In 2008, I left the luxury car industry to pursue a career in finance at The Bank of Nova Scotia, obtaining my accounting diploma soon after. As a U.S. & International Corporate Loan Officer, I managed a large portfolio, as well as the financial intuitions relationships with corporations, lawyers and lenders.

Driven by creative challenges, I completed a PR, Corporate Communications certificate at Humber College, before leaving the world of banking to work at a startup called Quintessentially in 2014. Founded in London, Quintessentially focused on providing life experiences for wealthy individuals.

2014 was a great year for me:

- I developed skills in business development and recognizing opportunities for growth.

- I worked on a few projects; Jimmy Choo and Anthropology Canada launch event.

- Handled PR for The Remix Project hosted by Dave Ballard to raise money for disadvantaged youth who excel in the arts.

- Organized and planned the celebratory event for Accenture ending a major project.

Creating and implementing strategy plans for websites and social media, today 7Figures not only specializes in personal branding, but is also experienced in branding for difficult niche industries such as the medical field.

My work experiences and interest has prepared me to be an exceptional team player who is proactive, efficient, methodical, and boasts strong interpersonal and people management skills. I provide innovative customer focused ideas by understanding key customers brands, platforms, and strategies. Let’s connect!
