Alex is the Founder and Managing Partner of Blue Mountain Capital. The purpose of Blue Mountain Capital is to identify an established company to acquire and grow. Alex is assisted in this effort by a group of experienced investors and operators who are excited to provide support.

Alex has an MBA from the Haas School of Business at UC Berkeley and a B.S. in Construction Management from Western Carolina University. Before business school, Alex spent his career in project management building large industrial construction projects.
He excelled as a leader and gained significant experience in project management, operations, and leadership. He firmly believes in servant leadership- setting a clear vision for his team and empowering them to accomplish that vision. By having the right team in place and empowering them with an ownership mindset, Alex firmly believes that any team has the chance to succeed despite external circumstances.
Alex was born to immigrant parents who came to the United States seeking better opportunities. Desiring to focus on the character development of their children, the family relocated from New York City to the mountains of Western North Carolina. To this day, Alex has benefited immeasurably from the lessons learned on the farm. His beliefs in servant leadership, honesty, hard work, and his desire to give back to the community stem from his upbringing and intense gratitude to all who have supported his journey.
To relax, you will find Alex having fun with friends and family by spending time in the great outdoors: hiking, scuba diving, or camping. In addition, Alex has enjoyed visiting over 20 countries, both as a tourist as well as a volunteer. Most weekends, if he is not enjoying the beauty of nature, you can find Alex playing the piano as part of the worship team at his local congregation.
