CEO & Co-Founder
Since 1992, Alex has been heavily involved in internet and technology consulting. Upon graduating from Binghamton University, Alex knew he wanted to turn his passion into a career. In 2002, he founded a small consulting practice which would later merge with another local IT firm to become Red Key Solutions. His creativity, innovativeness, impeccable attention to detail, and devotion to both the Red Key team and our clients lay the foundation and groundwork of what drives Red Key to thrive in an ever changing technological landscape.
