Alicia L. Koledin, Assoc. AIA
With an academic background in both architecture and journalism, Alicia immediately
established a path of differentiation in a career that has spanned two decades. Her internal
roles at some of the most renowned international firms—including SOM, Gensler, and Diller
Scofidio + Renfro—taught her not only how to navigate difficult challenges but to seek them
out, realizing that only with periods of change and regrowth do we experience true success.
Now at the helm of AKcelerate, Alicia shares this insight with her clients to help them achieve
their business goals. By putting relationships at the forefront of all of her work—whether in
business development, marketing or communications—she builds better ones with her clients,
and on behalf of her clients. She effectively bridges the communication gap between owner
and service provider, and has honed an award-winning marketing style based on honesty,
clarity, and shared values.
