Alison McIntosh is Founder and President of her Dallas-based fundraising and consulting firm, The McIntosh Company (TMC). McIntosh began full-time fundraising as a student at SMU working for gubernatorial and congressional clients. At 24, McIntosh served as Texas Finance Director for the Bush '92 re-election campaign based in Houston. Early in her career, McIntosh understood that effective fundraising not only sustains campaigns financially but stimulates synergies and cohesiveness between all parts of the campaign. With these initial experiences, McIntosh founded TMC in Dallas in 1992. Since then, TMC has remained deeply involved in both Texas and national politics, with a successful record of more than four hundred local, state, federal, and non-profit clients.
McIntosh was named as a “Woman to Watch” in 2009. She graduated from Southern Methodist University with a B.A. in Communications and studied at the College of Salzburg her Junior year. She is a life-long resident of Texas and resides in Highland Park with her husband and former Marine, Rob. They have two sons, Robert and Elton, who attend Texas A&M University, and a daughter, Cassie, who attends Highland Park High School.
