Alex is never shy of showing and sharing his love, skills, and dedication for mountain biking. Whether that’s hitting one last lap on the trails, or spending weeks on the road launching SRAM's product portfolio. His MTB industry career is both diverse and unique, and paved the road he travelled on the journey to his new position with SRAM.
Alex competed as a cyclist in both road and MTB in his youth, before moving solely to MTB during his graduate studies. His commitment to MTB marketing echoes his passion for riding; developing a MTB leadership awards program, skills coaching company, and working alongside his brother, Joe, delivering Enduro events, prior to starting at SRAM's Drivetrain Development centre in Schweinfurt, Germany. His new role comes after 4 years as a core member of the SRAM marketing and communications team in Europe, where he specialized in planning and executing the delivery of SRAM, RockShox and Zipp MTB products to the market.
For those MTB marketing professionals out there, Alex will be further strengthening SRAM's European Communications team by hiring new European PR and Communications coordinators in the very near future.
