Ivy Ching

Brand & Marketing Strategist

After two decades of working in advertising and marketing for other agencies, Ivy decided to make her own mark in 2020 with the launch of Hive Art Media, LLC. As a wearer of many hats and primarily the team’s Group Account Director/Brand & Marketing Strategist, Ivy’s diverse role includes leading, planning and project management of all account activities, and partnering with CEOs, executives, and solopreneurs to grow their personal and professional brands, human-to-human. She knows it’s not mastering the marketing flavor of the week that drives conversions and creates successful campaigns, but how well you connect with the heart-beating people you’re trying to help and communicate your understanding back to them. With a strong focus on client relationships, she strives to deliver the best creative work alongside the overall strategy of the client. Born in Hong Kong and raised in NYC (Lets Go Rangers!), Ivy is now a Philly resident who also enjoys rooting for the Eagles, browsing at brew fests, and volunteering at various organizations close to her heart. But it’s time spent with her close-knit family, their four dogs, and visiting her adopted tribe in Galway that tops the list.

Alan Wiener

Director of Business Development

With his background as an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon and educator, Alan brings to the Hive Art Media team a unique understanding of healthcare, social services, education, and related industries. Though his eye is on ever-changing marketing strategies, new business development and account service, Alan never loses sight of the all-important human element. Distilling the needs of every client, and presenting them to the correct audiences, is a key factor in every campaign. Whether it’s working with marketing, development or human resources departments, Alan looks to emphasize and communicate the uniqueness of each client. Alan is a native New Yorker and volunteers his time at the Bronx Zoo.
