He is proud of what he characterizes as "the best trade out there". The diversity of projects and craftsmanship required to complete projects has kept Alex passionate about this industry.

Over the span of his career, Alex has worked in all aspects of the elevator world including construction, modernizations, service and maintenance, on various forms of equipment. His experience spans across Canada, Europe and the United States, working on and managing multi-million dollar projects of all kinds.

Alex's favourite projects have been working on urban highrises and his unique experience installing elevators on ships in Europe. Alex's primary focus is on the quality of the work and precision to ensure high functioning equipment.

His recent partnership with Jeff and Nikki Brown has been exciting and energizing! Alex's vision for the collaboration between Modern Elevator Innovations Incorporated and Empire Elevator Corp. is to offer world-class product and installation solutions to clients for projects of varying scope, while fostering strong client relationships.
