Tierney Fortner

bio-slash Tierney Fortner

Finding creative solutions to problems is something Tierney is known for. It’s why she was asked to join the SLANT team after interning in the company’s competitive program during her studies at Southern Methodist University. Following her time at SLANT, she earned her bachelor’s degree in advertising with a specialization in strategic brand management, and went on to work as an account manager for a groundbreaking event company known for delivering engaging brand experiences. Her responsibilities included event execution, from the initial brainstorm to sourcing venues and coordinating logistics. 

She is now a brand partner out of SLANT’s West Coast office, assisting with new and long-term client projects. It’s only fitting she would end up in Cali—born in Delaware and a longtime native of Florida, Tierney is passionate about outdoor activities—especially when it comes to spending time oceanside. When she isn’t working with clients, she can be found hunting for interesting coffee shops or in the kitchen testing new recipes. Another little-known fact: a video of her panning between snoring passengers on a flight made it on America’s Funniest Home Videos when she was 8 years old.
