Originally from the northern part of South Africa, Alex now lives in Stockholm where, apart from working at Octapharma, he enjoys brewing beer. Alex was educated in Johannesburg, moving at the age of 20 to the UK where he then spent 10 years working in a manufacturing industry.
In 2005, he met his Swedish future wife, moved to Stockholm and started a family. Every working day starts with a good cup of coffee followed by a full calendar of different activities, such as pulse meetings and strategic work. His favourite part of the day is after lunch, when he leaves his office and walks around the company site meeting employees. When he has any time to himself, Alex can be found brewing beer – something he enjoys very much because, although it is simple process, there are certain parameters that must be met.
