His methods eliminate frustration and find the unique starting line that propels companies past frustration and into success. In addition to solving thorny business problems, Alex enjoys pursuing his hobby of photography. He decided to write his first book, Transform Your Company: Escape Frustration, Align Your Business, and Get Your Life Back because something was missing from the business lexicon and business school curricula. The subject and term missing were Business Alignment Tools. Alex worked for more than a decade as a clean-up CFO for many entrepreneurial companies. He realized he was often just treating the financial symptoms of bigger organizational issues and the best tools to resolve them had no accepted name. They were more than planning or management systems. Alex set out to define the Business Alignment Tool world to help business leaders see which tools to use and in what order to remove the dysfunction from their businesses.
