Who is Alex?
Prior to supporting the industry, Alex left school at 16 to join the British Army and then completed the Commando course at the age of 19 earning himself the converted Green Beret. Only a year later he was deployed on Operation Herrick 14 in Afghanistan where he served with 24 Commando Engineer Regiment before eventually leaving the military in 2012.
After transitioning from the military Alex’s dream was to live in America, and with his Engineering background, Alex moved into the recruitment industry and has since settled in Houston, Texas to help spearhead Oscar Energy’s presence in the market.
Outside of work, Alex is a keen traveller, he enjoys spending time with his wife and their pets and is working on his golf game….though at the cost of numerous golf balls in the lake.
