Alex Durant founded Durant Consulting in 2006 to provide full-service auction solutions for nonprofits. She worked as the Director of Fundraising for Grandstand Sports in NYC from ‘98-2005 where she managed 300+ auctions per year with consignment memorabilia. She was consistently asked to produce all aspects of the nonprofit auctions by their clients and a move to Miami was the impetus to start DCI to fulfill the niche of auction production for galas, golf tournaments and Festivals. Over time, the company has morphed to include Sponsor Management at large scale events nationwide, Logistics, and Event Production locally in Charleston, SC. She currently oversees sponsor fulfillment and advancement at many award-winning festivals including the South Beach Wine & Food Festival, New York City Wine & Food Festival, and Life is Beautiful music festival in Downtown Las Vegas. DCI also manages all online and onsite auctions for the Charlotte Wine & Food Festival as well as many other online auction clients. Alex is by her own definition a hustler and the epitome of a true GSD kind of entrepreneur. We hope you enjoy this episode!
