Want to know more about Eliana?
Get to know Eliana even better with staff secrets about our Senior Vice President of Strategy and Partnerships:
Eliana is a first-generation American who grew up in Washington D.C. with her parents and brother. She enjoyed singing opera and was trained in classical ballet for 18 years, which is where her love for dance was born. Despite traveling extensively for work and fun, she has always called D.C. home. Eliana is a proud Terp and studied Business Administration and Marketing at the University of Maryland.
Eliana has been working with global brands and their creative service organizations (which includes production teams) for 20 years this December. “I have had the opportunity to help some of the most amazing brands in the world execute on their most significant campaigns and programs by entrusting me to partner with my creative counterparts to deliver,” Eliana said.
Her greatest accomplishment is raising kind and compassionate children in a sometimes complex and unexplainable world. What many don’t know about Eliana is that she sang competitive opera in high school. She loves dry wit English humor, and Jim Carrey is her favorite comedian. One day, she hopes to be Tina Turner’s neighbor in Nice, France, which is located in the middle of her favorite place to travel, the Mediterranean. Eliana enjoys traveling along the Mediterranean from Barcelona to the Isles of Greece while enjoying great wine and food along the way.
When Eliana is not in our office, she can be found jamming out in a Zumba class, gardening, making crafts, and cooking with her children. Being an Ethiopian American, Ethiopian food is a staple in her household along with Indian cuisine, sushi, and Thai food. She has a great eye for all types of design and is a certified executive coach. Every day, she practices being grateful for the beautiful moments and people in her life.
Eliana is passionate about women in business and diversity. She also enjoys data and the story data tells us. Her favorite quote is “success without data = emotion.” Eliana says she loves working with the entire CC team, meeting our crews, and viewing the cool projects they shoot. “I love the strategic thinking and planning I get to do in being a part of our 4th decade in business and disrupting our industry as a whole.” She is fanatical about client service; and with her business acumen, kind spirit, and fierce attitude to succeed, Eliana is a true asset to our CC team.
