In hotels such as the Kempinski Vier Jahreszeiten Munich and the Ritz Paris, Alex learned to meet the expectations of discerning guests and the essence of hospitality. Armed with a master's degree from ESSEC/Cornell, his career path as general manager, internal auditor, regional controller and business analyst brought him to over 25 different countries in Europe, North America, Africa and the Middle East.
