Suzy Jacobs

Senior Vice President of Business Development


Bucket List:
I would love to one day fly around the world, take a camel ride to the Egyptian Pyramids with dinner by the Nile, and climb Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania.

Name a person you would want to have dinner with:
I would want to have dinner with Jane Austen, Amelia Earhart, Audrey Hepburn and my dad, Jim Draddy.

My first job was a lifeguard at a local hotel-fun fact-saved someone my first day on the job! For the last twenty five years I have been a media maven. I started my career  selling traditional advertising for Inc magazine in NYC and throughout the years have been able to navigate the ever changing media landscape to lead sales and marketing teams by identifying  new opportunities across print, digital and social media channels.

My Life at AALU:
I am responsible for all revenue generation throughout the organization. I am constantly focused on how to increase our membership, create stronger corporate partnerships and making the Annual Meeting an experience that our sponsors and exhibitors find their ROI.
