ALEX SHAFIER – MANAGER
After completing a degree in Management & Philosophy, the only logical step for Alex was to embark on a consulting career, initially joining Accenture’s graduate programme. He ‘cut his consulting teeth’ on a variety of global transformation programmes for clients such as Unilever and SABMiller, with major stints spent in Rotterdam, Madrid, Johannesburg and Copenhagen. Alex later joined Ernst & Young and became a Post Merger Integration specialist, working on pre-deal due diligence and post-deal execution on a number of high profile transactions including Takeda/Nycomed, Morrisons and Experian. Thus armed, Alex felt ready for a new set of challenges at Gate One. In his spare time Alex enjoys trying to emulate his two sporting icons: Mo Farah, when competing in marathons and the occasional Tough Mudder; and Eddie the Eagle, while terrifying friends and other innocent Alpinists on annual ski trips.
