Emily Columbia

Corporate Services Senior Account Manager

AALU


Bucket List:
My goal is to build a brand with transferable value. I also hope to get a traditional tebori tattoo in Japan, observe an ICC trial at the Hague, and take a shaman guided journey through the Sacred Valley in Peru.

Name a person with whom you most would want to have dinner:
I would dine with Pablo Neruda.

Experience:
I worked for my mom’s company starting at age 14 (VA allows you to obtain a workers permit for your parents’ company before the age of 15).  Throughout college I managed sales teams and asset management at a publicly traded corporation. I later went on to work for the National Apartment Association as a Business Development professional, managing strategic sales and marketing of their SaaS non-dues revenue generating enterprise solution ($10M+ annually).

My Life at AALU:
I manage the Issues Alliance, sponsorship, exhibit and promotional corporate partner programs with select carrier, producer, IMO, and other industry organizations.
