In 2003, after several years of top management experience, Alexander founded a rail freight transportation company (now called GlobalTrans), which, through rapid organic growth and acquisitions, became the undisputed leader in the CIS market, with a fleet of 67 thousand freight cars and reaching the capitalization of 2 bln USD.
Together with partners, Alexander built the company almost from scratch and led it to the IPO on the London Stock Exchange in 2008. He was the first to develop, together with banks, the modern leasing frameworks that became an industry standard for developing markets. Having built business processes and carried out two successful SPOs of GlobalTrans, Alexander became passionate about a new venture—road freight. To pursue this new interest, he resigned from GlobalTrans in 2012 and started building a road transportation company, GlobalTruck, which originated from a regional transportation company, Lorry. By 2017, GlobalTruck had become the second largest independent player on the market and was the only road transportation company in CIS that made an IPO.
Alexander also owns several ocean ships that are engaged in bulk cargo. He is an active investor who backs several startups across Europe.
