Alexander provides reputation management advice to leading businesses in energy, health and transport. Examples of his corporate client experience include: Randox, the United Kingdom’s largest medical diagnostics company; and DP World, the world’s largest container port operator. He has also supported several major political campaigns, such as: an international effort to raise awareness of extremist Islamist activity; Imran Khan’s successful bid to become the Prime Minister of Pakistan in the 2018 General Election; and the Government of Ethiopia’s global reputation management campaign during the 2020-2022 Tigray War.
