Background

After moving to Sydney and completing his Economics degree, Alex fell into his first job in accounting for an Australian listed diversified property group when he served their team beer at a bar he was working in post-university. He initially joined them as an accountant but really enjoyed the real estate side of things. He loved seeing the results of what the business was involved in physically come to life, to become part of the landscape. So he moved to a boutique real estate investment and advisory firm, and worked across a broad range of property related disciplines, including structured finance and transaction management, before moving into funds management and capital transaction roles.

Alex has been with Pepper for over two years and is enjoying the relationships he is building with clients and the measurable ability to impact the success of their business.

 

Most challenging experience

Probably walking the Kokoda Track. The track is hard enough and the tropical climate can make it very tough. An incredible experience though.

 

Alex in three words

Honest.  Thoughtful.  Passionate.
