A local lad, Alex was born and raised in Market Harborough, went to Leicester University and qualified with the local office of a national firm. After a spell as manager with a smaller firm in Northampton, Alex became a director of Somerbys in Spring 2012. Meeting, advising and helping people is what drives him during office hours; his Vespa scooter (complete with Parka) is what he drives at weekends!! Among his other passions is a love of the French lifestyle and cuisine that he enjoys from the family’s holiday home in Le Touquet. Alex is married with a young daughter who share their home with a pair of French Bassett hounds, Bertie and Daisy.
