Driven to serve communities, Alex joined the ScaleCo Team as a Summer Intern in June 2021. Alex is currently attending The Ohio State University as a Finance Major and is expected to graduate in May 2022. He found ScaleCo through a connection with a mentor, a fellow fraternity brother of Kappa Alpha Psi, who encouraged him to apply for the position.
Prior to joining ScaleCo, Alex was hoping to gain greater knowledge of the private equity space, and the business world at large. He worked closely with ScaleCo’s Operating Partner Ryan Addis, who gave him critical insight to the industry. “Something that I enjoyed the most at ScaleCo was having Ryan give us work by saying, ‘here, you got it’. That trust was something I thought was cool”. During his time at ScaleCo, Alex was responsible for creating a CRM Dashboard for one of ScaleCo’s platform companies, reviewing financial models, and researching deals. This exposure helped him to understand business structure, organizational skills, and company management.
Alex enjoyed learning more about how small and midsize businesses operate. He credits ScaleCo for instilling a “work hard, play hard” mentality that he plans to apply to his senior year of school. Equipped with a hardworking attitude, Alex successfully completed multiple projects during his internship.
In ten years’ time, Alex envisions himself working within professional sports organizations on the West Coast. A passionate people-person, he wants to make a significant impact on communities in need with a business focus. Outside of work, Alex is an avid baseball fan. Always eager to learn, Alex’s efforts were incredible during his summer internship. We wish him luck as he continues his undergraduate education!
