About Us

At Eco-Maven Associates, our goal is to help you navigate the green wave that is driving innovation across the Puget Sound region, the country and the planet.

Our founder, Alexandra Steele, has a proven track record in business development and marketing leadership across a range of industry sectors, from Wall Street financial services to Fortune 500 consumer goods and professional design/build services companies. She builds on that breadth of experience with her deep knowledge in sustainable business and green marketing practices.

Alex earned an undergraduate degree in Economics and received an MBA from Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business, where she discovered her passion and talent for marketing.

Born in Argentina and raised in the US, Alex is fluent in her native Spanish. When not greening the world professionally, Alex enjoys the beauty of the Pacific Northwest while hiking, biking, and kayaking. When the weather calls for indoor activities, she enjoys reading fiction while drinking a double-tall Americano or dining out with friends savoring a full-bodied Malbec — one of Argentina’s finest exports.

EcoMaven Associates supports business and community groups dedicated to innovation and progress.
