Executive and Marketing Assistant
Aleece is a sales and marketing professional with over 20 years of comprehensive experience in the luxury goods market. Aleece earned a bachelor's degree in Business Management & Marketing and graduated with honors from North Carolina State University. During her college years, Aleece studied in France and spent additional time backpacking across Europe. This began her love for travel, culture, food, wine, and fashion that continues to this day. She has visited 19 countries on 4 continents and based on sales volume was awarded a trip to Paris in 2016 by Lancôme cosmetics.
Aleece relocated to Hermosa Beach in 1997 and began her career as a Business Manager with Lancôme Cosmetics. After 4 years of exceeding her sales goals, she took a role as a Territory Brand Manager to oversee the Calvin Klein and Vera Wang fragrance business LA and OC. In 2006, Aleece left retail for 2 years to work with an innovative cosmeceutical skincare line where she called on dermatologists, plastic surgeons, and Medical Spas.
In 2009, Aleece worked side-by-side with the CEO of Hammitt Los Angeles and was instrumental in building a global, luxury handbag line founded here in the South Bay. Following her year with Hammitt, she returned to Lancôme where she worked as a Regional Sales & Education Trainer and was awarded National “SET” of the Year in 2015.
She made a clean break from the cosmetics industry in 2017 when she started an online CBD distribution company, Kannabusiness, which is still going strong. Additionally, she began working part-time with the Xavier & Xavier Team helping out with administrative marketing and listing and buyer coordination needs. She is a great fit with our company culture and Aleece has been our Executive & Marketing Assistant since July of 2018 and will obtain her real estate license in early 2021!
