The Alzada Company has officially introduced its director of marketing and communications, Jane Brickley Disla.
As marketing director, Disla is responsible for conceptualizing and creating all branding, marketing and communications for Alzada and its debut development, The Irving Downtown, a luxury mid-rise rental community coming soon to the historic River District of Downtown Fort Myers, Florida.
“I’ve worked with Jane for over five years on several developments, and I knew she was the ideal candidate for our marketing director,” said Alzada owner and president, Rebekah Barney. “Jane has an innate ability to creatively translate facts and figures into engaging branded content and collateral, always with originality and nuance, always with exceptional quality and style.”
With 15 years of professional writing and graphic design experience and more than a decade in branding, web design and marketing, Disla’s expertise encompasses a spectrum of traditional and new media, from newspapers and TV ads to the vast, varied and ever-changing digital landscape of web, social, search engine, mobile and email marketing.
After receiving a B.A. in English from Ohio State, Disla relocated to Southwest Florida and was hired into a weekly newspaper group on Sanibel and Captiva, where she quickly rose from staff reporter and layout artist to editor, and received a “Best Feature” award from the Florida Press Association (2010). In 2011 she began her branding and marketing career, and has since crafted content and strategy across many industries, including art galleries and artists, high-end boutiques, skincare and cosmetics, luxury salons and spas, Realtors®, and various Southwest Florida small business owners.
Since 2017, when she first joined Barney’s team as a marketing coordinator, Disla’s focus has been real estate development, including a $90M luxury 55+ high-rise rental community and a $140M luxury high-rise two-tower condominium, both located on the Downtown Fort Myers waterfront.
“Rebekah’s mentorship over the past five years has been a privilege for which I’m so grateful,” Disla said. “Her vision is innovative and her commitment to historic preservation and sustainable development is inspiring, and I’m honored and so proud to be a part of the company – and communities – she’s building from the ground up.”
Although Disla grew up in Central Ohio, she has been visiting family and vacationing in Southwest Florida her entire life, finally making the move to Fort Myers in 2007. She now resides in Cape Coral with her husband.
