Administrative Coordinator


A born and raised Londoner, Alex made the leap over the Atlantic to Winnipeg during summer 2020. She previously worked in Talent Acquisition for a prominent British clothing brand and is excited to find new ways to apply her HR experience alongside the team at the Exchange District BIZ. Learning about the varied aspects of this iconic neighbourhood through the work that the BIZ does has given Alex a deeper sense of connection to her adopted city, though she can’t wait to explore even more in a post-pandemic world.
