Ally Basak Russell

Senior Director of Marketing at WeWork

Ally leads the demand generation, content marketing, and segment marketing teams at WeWork. A former startup veteran, teacher, lawyer, editor, and globetrotting digital nomad, she’s now happily rooted in the Bay Area where she raises her toddler boys, geeks out on DIY interior design projects, and leads a team of world-class marketers from the lofty perch of WeWork Salesforce Tower. She’s passionate about authenticity in leadership, the psychology of space and design, and empowering disadvantaged communities through education and entrepreneurship.
