“The thing about Alex that struck us immediately when he walked in was: he is a natural born leader.
I mean, he really comes in, he knows exactly what he wants to do, he’s very focused.
He carries himself with a bearing and it felt like, wow – this is a guy who really could be the leader of the team.
So, I think that combo really made us feel like we had our cornerstone right away and from that we could build outward.”
