As Director Ad Operations, Alexander is dealing with ever-changing challenges, new and innovative products and technologies on a daily basis. And, as a matter of fact, he loves both. This is no surprise because Alexander has been working in the field of online marketing since 1995, and doing so, he acquired numerous skills that he could implement at ProSiebenSat.1, AOL and United Internet, among others.
