When Alex moved to Clinton, Iowa from Vietnam at the age of 12, he spoke no English. He started in school two grades behind what his age called for because of the language challenge. Alex quickly addressed that challenge, became an Honor Roll and National Honor Society student and was elected class president all four years of high school. Alex graduated from Drake University as a Finance major with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration. He is fluent in six languages: English, Vietnamese, Mandarin Chinese, Taiwanese, Cantonese and Chiu Chow.
Alex manages a comprehensive marketing strategy and internal communications for Mediacom’s largest regional territory. He manages the sales performance and sales training for over 250 employees and under his leadership front counter sales increased by 68%. Giving back to the community is an integral part of who Alex is. He serves on the Des Moines Public Library Foundation Board of Directors, on the Greater Des Moines Young Professionals Connection Board, on the Marketing committee for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Iowa, the Iowa Asian Alliance and the 2016 CelebrAsian Leadership Team. He has volunteered Young Variety the Children’s Charity of Iowa and Meals from the Heartland. Alex is a member of the Business Record’s Forty Under 40 Class of 2016 and YPC honored him with the 2016 Ashley Oakland Community Service Award.”
