“There are many leadership qualities I admire about Alex. Perhaps the one that has meant the most to me is that he supports our staff by pro viding numerous opportunities for personal and professional growth within the organization. Over my 12 years at the FBA, I have watched him push our professional staff to take on new chal lenges that will help us become the best versions of ourselves.” — Kenneth Pratt, Senior Vice President, Government Affairs “Alex — having worked with you for so many years, I have seen how much you truly care about the people in your life. You are passionate about helping our members and defending the banking industry, but you also take the time to connect with people on a personal level. You have done the same for our staff, making sure that we all feel valued as members of the FBA team. There are many staff who have been with FBA for de cades, and I think that is due to your leadership.
