Alex is a Principal with 14 years of automotive industry experience across the entire value chain and seven years of advisory experience, focusing on transformational programs that include product development and management, post-merger integration, and business and growth strategies.
Alex started his career in the automotive industry at the Ford Motor Company where he delivered 1MM+ vehicles to market. He held numerous roles of increasing responsibility across the product development lifecycle, including Product Development Engineer, Six Sigma Black Belt, Business Analyst, and Program Launch Lead. His responsibilities included: designing and validating components and sub-systems, permanently resolving mass warranty issues, developing and executing business cases for vehicle programs, and leading engineering change management for a $1B+ platform.
As a consultant, Alex helps his clients to identify and operationalize value-enhancing programs; for example, he ran an engineering modularity study demonstrating that a common architecture across product lines was feasible and would deliver annual savings of $3MM+. He has hands-on experience with transformational programs, such as designing commercialization strategies for autonomous vehicles and leading the integration of Engineering and Operations departments for a $32B post-merger engagement. Alex also supports his clients in resolving arduous business situations: he ran the PMO for an ERP rescue where the system was stabilized and $7MM+ of missing initial inventory balance was identified and accounted for. Further, he removed inefficiencies from a $3B+ annual revenue planning process that were diminishing the accuracy of long-term forecasts.
Alex joined Liberty because of the company’s hands-on approach to problem-solving and collaborating with clients. He also appreciates the career flexibility that Liberty offers – he has grown his technology skills and authored an in-depth whitepaper on overcoming the challenges of commercializing autonomous vehicles.
