Elliott Pesut

A pilot by trade and marketer by happenstance, Elliott is currently the director of marketing at Alaska Airlines where he leads the team responsible for personalization, ad campaigns, media strategy, and content. In his 10+ years at Alaska, he’s seen tremendous change: from Alaska’s first flight to Hawai‘i in 2007, to the airline’s brand refresh in 2016, to the acquisition of Virgin America to become the 5th largest U.S. airline – the only constant has been big change. Through it all, Elliott believes Alaska’s bold embrace of business challenges has been key to the company’s growth and success.
