Alex leads the pymetrics business in EMEA. Having trained as an engineer at University, Alex decided that he was more suited talking to people than building machines, and set off on a sales path that took him through the dot-com boom and bust in the telecoms industry and then into the broader world of technology at Microsoft. Since 2011 he has been enjoying bringing disruption toHR tech space, first at LinkedIn and now at pymetrics. He is an optimist with a firm belief in the power of technology to make people happier and healthier, and to make organisations more efficient, fair and successful.
