Alex has earned a reputation for success and ingenuity from his more than twenty years experience in public relations, journalism, marketing and broadcasting. His career has spanned several industries including broadcasting, healthcare, non-profit organizations and higher education.

His work in the news media includes positions as an editor, journalist and radio talk show host. As vice president of Kansas City Public Television he was credited with creating greater public awareness of KCPT’s mission, programming and initiatives. Alex left the television industry to create a communications division for one of Kansas City’s leading special events firms.

In 2008 through 2010, Alex served on the production team as director of marketing and public relations for KCRiverFest, one of Kansas City’s largest community festivals. His public relations and marketing strategy garnered national attention for the festival by securing an international festival award finalist nomination in Special Events Magazine; a “Travel Treasure” award in AAA Midwest Traveler Magazine and a partnership with Midwest Living Magazine. The event earned positive coverage from all major television and print news outlets in the Kansas City market.

He founded AlexanderG Public Relations, LLC in January 2010 (now AGPR).
