Before starting at Setsquare, Alex ran Future Finishes, a London based market leader in spray finishing, which was acquired in 1999 by Setsquare. Alex was asked to work at Setsquare, as it was immediately obvious that he would be an asset to the company, starting as a CNC Programmer /CAD Draughtsman.
During the years, he has grown to become an efficient and creative Project Manager by continuously achieving the clients’ expectations. Today, Alex is part of the Board of Directors and his aim is to always create an energetic and desirable work place.
