Alexander graduated from the University of Connecticut in 2014 with a Bachelor of Arts in Communication. Picking communications as a field of study was deliberate.

After graduating from the University of Connecticut in 2014, Alexander started his career as an Exhibit Marketing Consultant at Skyline Exhibits. The company is an international leader in the trade show marketing industry. Alexander interned at Skyline Exhibits for two years while studying at the University of Connecticut, and started working there full-time upon graduation. Alexander learned about sales, marketing, and relationship building from his mentor, clients, colleagues, and people he met at exhibitions and meetings.
From Skyline Exhibits, he moved on to APP Technologies, LLC, based in Norwalk, CT, in March 2015, to become their Sales Consultant. In this role, Alexander ran the sales and marketing program for the small software company. Working in sales for a leading claims management software company exposed him to so much knowledge and expertise in B2B SaaS products as well as the claims and risk management industry. Alexander ran the entire sales process from prospecting, performing demos, closing contracts, implementations, and performing on-site training sessions. Working on software implementation projects with his team of software developers is where Alexander first started to develop his project management skills and where he realized he wanted to focus on a career in Project Management.
