Alex talks about his role in the bank and life outside the bank.

What are you passionate about in your role? I strive to develop long-term partnerships with my customers, and to become a trusted advisor and resource to them as they develop and grow their businesses.

What are some of your hobbies and interests? I enjoy golfing, camping, running, and spending time with my family and our dog, Daisy.

Are you involved with any community causes or organizations? I have volunteered for a number of financial and business organizations. Currently, I am a member of the Webster Square Business Association, and an Ambassador with the Worcester Chamber of Commerce. In August, my wife and I will be traveling to Columbus, Ohio, to participate in the annual Pelotonia ride. We will be biking 50 miles and fundraising for cancer research.

Can you tell us a fun fact about yourself? Several years ago, I completed my goal of running the Providence Marathon. I have also completed a half marathon, three marathon relay races, and many other shorter races.
