After finishing the Master Financial Economics at the Erasmus University Rotterdam, Alec started his career at a subsidiary of Gazprom-Media in Moscow, Russia. He was responsible for exploring and implementing new opportunities for growth, predominantly with an international character. He gained experience in aligning various stakeholders’ interests by working across countries and cultures. He witnessed first-hand how disruptions impacted and completely transformed the media industry, which triggered his desire to develop the necessary skill-set to succeed in tomorrow’s business landscape. SparkOptimus offers just that: embracing disruptions to create sustainable value for clients. In his spare time, Alec enjoys cooking, skydiving and going to the movies.
