Pas­sion­ate about cre­at­ing spaces for indi­vid­u­als, com­pa­nies, and brands to connect
Alex is pas­sion­ate about cre­at­ing spaces for indi­vid­u­als, com­pa­nies, and brands to connect.

Best known as a social media pro­fes­sional, Alex advises orga­ni­za­tions on their use of social net­works to build brand rela­tion­ships with key con­stituents and the community.

He is adept at busi­ness strat­egy, con­cept design, mar­ket­ing com­mu­ni­ca­tion, as well as  lead­ing the imple­men­ta­tion of com­plex soft­ware devel­op­ment projects with dis­trib­uted teams. He is also an expert in the use of social media mon­i­tor­ing to estab­lish quan­ti­ta­tive and qual­i­ta­tive per­for­mance met­rics and measurement.

Alex is the co-founder of BuzzMed (for­merly VoxMed), a world­wide com­mu­nity for physi­cians, health­care pro­fes­sion­als, and phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal com­pa­nies to exchange sci­en­tific infor­ma­tion and research.

Pre­vi­ously, he directed busi­ness devel­op­ment efforts at online media and mobile con­tent com­pa­nies and co-founded a lead­ing Euro­pean e-mail mar­ket­ing provider. Prior to that, while at a major con­sul­tancy, he advised blue-chip com­pa­nies on strate­gic ini­tia­tives. Clients have included Air France, Chevron, Gen­eral Motors, Corn­ing Saint-Gobain, British Air­ways, Rep­sol, Visa, Le Parisien, NRJ Radio, Carat, Sanofi-Aventis, Nor­tel Net­works, and the Finnish Ven­ture Cap­i­tal Association.

Based in Miami, Florida, Alex has helped unite South Florida’s tech com­mu­nity by orga­niz­ing The Startup Forum, Social Media Club, Bar­Camp, Ignite Miami, Social Media Day, and Mobile Mon­day events for South Florida new media pro­fes­sion­als; he is also a found­ing mem­ber of Refresh­Mi­ami.

Over the past six years, these orga­ni­za­tions have hosted events for over 10,000 tech­nol­ogy and busi­ness pro­fes­sion­als, lead­ing to new busi­ness con­nec­tions, employ­ment oppor­tu­ni­ties, and startup ideas. These forums have intro­duced entre­pre­neurs to investors, where tech­nol­o­gists have demon­strated new appli­ca­tions that have launched as new startup ventures.

An accom­plished pub­lic speaker, Alex has spo­ken nation­ally and inter­na­tion­ally to a vari­ety of audi­ences from C-Level indus­try exec­u­tives to high school stu­dents. Alex caters each pre­sen­ta­tion to the audience’s inter­ests and com­pre­hen­sion level, mak­ing sense of the com­plex, expos­ing the irrel­e­vant, and debunk­ing the most com­mon mis­con­cep­tions along the way. His speak­ing style is ener­getic, infor­ma­tional, and lively; his slides are visual and evocative.

In addi­tion to his career in con­sult­ing, Alex is an adjunct pro­fes­sor at the Uni­ver­sity of Miami’s School of Com­mu­ni­ca­tions.  He teaches a full-semester course on social media and recently co-authored “Secur­ing The Clicks: Net­work Secu­rity in the Age of Social Media” with MacGraw-Hill.

Alex obtained an MBA from Insead in Fontainebleau France, one of the top-rated inter­na­tional busi­ness schools in the world.  He is flu­ent in  Eng­lish, French, Por­tuguese, Span­ish and Finnish.
