About Alex

I ran an agency for a large part of my career called Right 2 Revenue where we focused on setting up user and client acquisition funnels for various verticals. From there, I ran growth as a Vice President and early team member for platforms like Carlease.com, Curiosity.com and Younity.

In those roles, I relied on Partners to quickly ramp up my brands presence in a new space (i.e. car leasing - we were not auto industry veterans, so we had to learn, build a platform, and market simultaneously). I was always known for being able to do a lot with a little. And partners were a huge reason for that. I still had never heard the term “Channel.” After those platforms came and went, I launched my own called Automated.af - focused on linking top marketing and sales automators with companies who needed them. I built a large Slack station with agencies and thought leaders. I also built a Slack application that deployed pre-built automations for teams. But, I knew I wasn’t thinking big enough.

After writing a GTM strategy for a SaaS client that included a partnerships strategy as the key pillar, and hearing the founder question “Why not SEO or sales as the key pillar?” I realized how little most founders knew about the power of partnerships. That night, I bought the domain Partnerprograms.io and set out to educate and build the platform for partner-led growth.
