Alex’s role as Chief Administrative Officer requires that he be part visionary, collaborating with owner and President Kay Goodwyn to map out the long-term strategic direction of the company, and part air-traffic controller, working to ensure that other company leaders receive the support and resources they need to put that vision into action.
Before taking on this role, Alex was Roco Rescue’s point person for proposals and contracts as well as being deeply involved in both financial administration and human resources. In addition, he also taught tactical rescue courses, primarily to Department of Defense and other federal government customers.
Prior to joining Roco Rescue, Alex served as a Pararescueman (PJ) in the U.S. Air Force for six years. While in the PJs, he took courses with Roco Rescue, and it was in these courses that he discovered a passion for technical rescue that eventually led him to become an instructor. He has been with Roco Rescue full-time since 2010.
Alex splits his time outside the office between Maine and Florida, where he enjoys being outdoors with his wife and two young sons.
