Greetings! I’m Alex, I am from Austin, TX, and am excited to be apart of the SCM program with you all this fall. I look forward to learning, working, and collaborating with the best minds in the supply chain space, and making great friends along the way. My educational background starts at UT Austin with my BA, and I completed my MBA at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign just this May. I chose the SCM program at MIT because of its academic rigor, and because I wanted in depth, supply chain specific industry knowledge that a more broad degree like an MBA could not provide on its own. Professionally, I have spent most of my career in pricing, being lucky to have worked for two unicorn 3PL start ups Arrive Logistics and Flock Freight, as well as a stint at Zillow as well. I love the outdoors, going to the gym, reading, and listening to podcasts. While in Cambridge I am excited to see the northeast architecture and weather!
