Ms. Alejandra Jackson
Founder, Senior Vice President, Chief Operating Officer
and Board of Directors of ROGO Capital Partners, LLC.
Prior to joining forces with her friend of 30 years, Mr. Phillips, to form ROGO Capital, Ms. Jackson was a talent manager and consultant to several of Hollywood’s A-List celebrities helping strategize their careers and negotiating multi-million dollar deals on their behalf. Ms. Jackson co-created, executive produced and sold the reality television series, “Living With The Jacksons,” to the well-known cable network, REELZ.
From 1999 through 2009 Ms. Jackson was the global Chief Operating Officer for the fashion manufacturing and commercial company, Marketing International Artisans Y Amor in Bogota, Colombia. In that role she was responsible for management of the financial and operating aspects of its funds management business, which included oversight of financial, human resources and risk management.
With fashion being her passion and having a keen eye for design, Ms. Jackson formed her own company in the US called, “Shelter International/Alejandra Jackson Designs,” and opened her first clothing store in Bogota called, “Shelter.” Shelter became the blueprint to her overnight success in the fashion industry where her designs quickly became the new female trend and graced the cover of magazines throughout the world. Ms. Jackson, known to Hollywood as the “go to” designer, has dressed many Hollywood A-List celebrities such as Sofia Vergara, Eva Longoria, Alicia Keys and Jenny McCarthy, just to name a few. With the popularity and demand for her fashion line she was forced to expand her business and opened the largest clothing store in the history of Bogota in its ritziest area. Because of her success, national fashion brand, “French Kiss,” came knocking and requested that she’d do a line for their national stores, Ms. Jackson agreed and launched a new collection in 200 of their stores named, “AJACKSON.”
Humility is the best attribute to describe Ms. Jackson; it is this virtue that makes her an attracting force. She has a quality of unassuming inner strength and in her role as Chief Operating Officer of ROGO Capital Partners she will implement a fundamental financial foundation leading the company to a positive, energized and first class business.
