Alex McClung

Account Executive
AlexMcClung_01

Alex’s background in education advocacy and political communications helps to shape his work as an account coordinator with the education team. Before joining Hager Sharp, he interned at public relations and strategic communications firms with a variety of West Coast and Michigan-based clients, including the Michigan Education Association, the Michigan College Access Network and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. He holds a degree in international relations from Michigan State University’s James Madison College.

 Besides his unforgiving love of the Detroit Lions, the one quality that distinguishes Alex as a true Midwesterner is his piercing Michigan accent. He spent his entire life living in and loving the Mitten State. Washington might be his current home, but Alex hopes to reside in many more cities in the United States and abroad during his lifetime.

 His celebrity crush is Julia Louis-Dreyfuss. His only claim to fame is that he once sat next to Donald Trump’s second wife on the London Underground.

Hailing from the Mitten State with a passion for politics and an obsession with food trucks, Alex enjoys dark comedies, underdog stories and rooting for his Michigan State Spartans.
