President and Chief Strategist
A Gulf Coast native and Mobillian at heart, Stacy Wellborn has over 20 years of experience as a communications pioneer across the Southeast. From building community relationships and brands through strategic marketing, public relations and business development, to creating digital content that results in outstanding marketing campaigns that generate awareness and lucrative revenue, Wellborn is a true Lady Boss.
As the President and Chief Strategist of Wellborn Strategies, Stacy works with business leaders and entrepreneurs to identify, execute and realize their visions, often asking the hard questions. An entrepreneur herself, Stacy owns and operates Container Yard, a co-working space in downtown Mobile. In her role as the Yard Boss, she encourages entrepreneurs to identify creative solutions to business challenges and embrace new business ventures.
When Wellborn is not collaborating with a client, she is pursuing her passion for teaching by pouring her talents into students at Spring Hill College where she serves as a full-time professor in the business college.
An active member of her community and avid contributor to the creative scene of Mobile, Stacy shares her innovative ideas with local charitable organizations including Junior League of Mobile, Mobile United, Kappa Alpha Theta and Public Relations Council of Alabama.
Above all, Stacy finds pure joy in supporting her friends and family, sipping bubbles and spending quality time with her husband and spoiled pup Jed.
A Mobillian through and through, Mark is a graduate of Spring Hill College, where he attained a B.S. in Business Administration with a concentration in Marketing and Management.
Before joining the Wellborn team full time as our Marketing Coordinator, Mark served as the Digital Marketing Intern for Wellborn Strategies. Inspired by Wellborn and the drive to constantly learn more, Mark also serves as the Community Manager at Container Yard, where he handles daily operations, logistics and marketing efforts.
On our team you will typically see Mark alongside Stacy. While his day-to-day responsibilites include digital efforts, planning and account correspondence, Stacy and Mark are a dynamic team dedicated to serving their clients beyond expectations.
Influenced by the Jesuit ideals taught at Spring Hill College, Mark practices self- reflection and enjoys community involvement. Since joining the Wellborn team, Mark has began sharing his skills with the Public Relations Council of Alabama, the American Cancer Society Junior Leadership Council, the Gulf Coast Alumni Chapter of the Delta Chi Fraternity and most recently, he has joined the 2020 Connect Mobile class led by Mobile United.
Outside of the office Mark thrives by spending time with friends, enjoying the outdoors and jamming to pretty much any type of music.
A native New Yorker and crazy Yankees fan, Russ has called Northern California home for the last thirty years. Russ brings decades of knowledge to the Wellborn Strategies team with experience developing brands, traditional marketing materials and cutting-edge websites.
Stacy and Russ met through a mutual client in the mid-2010s and have worked together ever since. Though they have never met face-to-face, their partnership has brought many brands and campaigns to life over the last fifteen years.
A man of mystery, Russ tolls away from the hills of San Fransisco, with his trusty pup by his side.
