    Kelly Russo
    Operations Manager

    Kelly joined our team back in January of 2012. She plays a very diverse role in our office, working closely with every team and division in Anchorage. Kelly describes herself as competitive and driven and loves being a part of a close-knit and ambitious team. Even more so, Kelly is proud to be a part of a locally owned business that helps out her own community! She is extremely efficient with organizational processes and federal/state compliance.

    Besides being involved with the Chamber of Commerce and education committee, Kelly loves to cook and spend time with her husband and three dogs.

    Martie Morgan
    Territory Sales Manager

    Martie Morgan is our office and clients’ cheerleader! She is an extremely motivated and driven person who loves celebrating the success of others and is always there to encourage our team and clients to be the very best they can be. The one thing that can be said over and over again about Martie is that she is always upbeat and positive. She enjoys making others smile and is always laughing because she believes it keeps her young. Martie says that the most rewarding part of working for Express Anchorage is, “seeing the satisfaction of having a solution for clients and providing career opportunities for people.”

    Prior to joining our Express team, Martie worked in banking and financing for 12 years. This substantial experience has proven beneficial to her thriving at Express Anchorage. She also has 7 years of experience as a certified Culinarian under her belt.

    Martie was born in Louisiana and raised in Atlanta, GA. In 2011, Martie took a leap of faith and relocated from Atlanta, to start a new job and to be closer to her siblings. Their family has called Anchorage home ever since.

    When she’s not in the office boosting client and co-workers moral, Martie is at home spending quality time with her two beautiful daughters, Asya and Brooklyn, who are the sole reasons for making Martie the strong, driven individual that she is today. Martie also serves as an active member of the Anchorage Referral Network and the Alaska Referral Network.

    With a strong sense of community and family, Martie has proven to be an exceptional individual who is there for our community and for her family, and we couldn’t be more proud to call her a member of our Express Anchorage team!

    David Lowe
    Managing Director of Professional Staffing

    Since March of 2007, David Lowe has been striving for success here at Express! He came to us with four years of prior sales and sales management; however, his favorite part about working with Express has to do with, not sales, but matching great companies with great employees as well as working alongside our fantastic team! 

    When he isn’t at home with his beautiful wife and kids, David enjoys to golf and following the stock market. David’s strong will to succeed and refusal to fail makes him the perfect candidate for our office!

    Aron has to be one of our most creative here at Express Anchorage. Since 2014, Aron has been lighting up the office with her infectious laugh and passion for making the atmosphere around her a more enjoyable place. Aron has been working since the age of 14. She applied for a business license and cleaned office buildings until eventually moving onto retail management, administration, and a barista position. She has also done some work as a freelance writer and makeup artist. Aron’s favorite part about working with Express is the goal-driven environment the job’s potential.

    Aron has been a proud Alaskan resident since 1997, and believes there is no place better to call home. When not being an office superstar, Aron has her hands full with a variety of activities such as reading, cooking (Mexican being her favorite), and crocheting. Aron also enjoys critiquing movies and shows on Netflix and being a freelance makeup artist, gluing eyelashes on any willing victim.
