Based in the United Kingdom, Alex is responsible to coordinate the activity of the local team and the organization in the US, having a non-executive role in the country partner organizations (Romania, Serbia, and Moldova).

With a background in finance and in marketing, Alex started as a volunteer for Hospice Casa Sperantei and made the decision to work full time for the last 7 years, his first assignment being to develop the first teaching inpatient unit in Bucharest.

One of the main focuses of Hospices of Hope is pioneering, 25 years ago palliative care, free of charge. Palliative care, was a totally untouched, unknown concept in Romania and the organization has pioneered this type of care at a national and regional level. He believes that now pioneering needs to be associated with technology, combining a very delicate and soft domain (such as health care or social care) with the right technology will, I am sure, will be a key factor in the next years. NGOs, not only companies, need to understand this and get on board. We are investing a lot of resources in technology as part of our strategy and we are lucky to have partners like Star Storage to help us make these changes.
