Alex began his career in 2007 with MetLife, before graduating with his bachelor’s degree in Finance from Western Michigan University. He continued his studies at Oakland University to obtain his CFP® certification in 2010. While studying, Alex spent over four years working with MetLife, growing his financial planning practice and becoming one of the youngest, top advisors in Michigan.
