Hello from Alex

Meet Alex Ford our latest team member in his new role as Business Development Manger.

I recently joined the Space Between family as their Business Development Manager and am an eCommerce evangelist with a love for all things commerce. I have been working in eCommerce for the last 8 years and in this time had the opportunity to work with some great teams and great brands alongside travelling the world talking eCommerce.

Being Magento certified and a Shopify partner I love talking about eCommerce and have been lucky enough to be invited to talk on my favourite subject in London, Dubai, Las Vegas and beyond. Whilst public speaking is not my favourite pastime I absolutely thrive on problem solving. Projects from low conversion rates, increasing customer engagement, rolling out automated marketing and everything in the space between is what I go to work for in the mornings.

Outside of work I’m still into my tech, I mine and invest in crypto currencies monthly and dabble in day trading Ethereum and Bitcoin. I also enjoy engineering, having built my own electric longboard with a top speed of 35mph+ using two RC helicopter motors and my 3D printer. I am a big electric vehicle fan watching Formula E (and 1) at the weekends with a dream of owning a Tesla.

Excluding tech I have been married to Hayley for almost two years having been together for 10. We have recently got a puppy chocolate labrador that had his own Instagram until recently as, depressingly, he was getting more likes than my own. At a weekend I can be found either tinkering with my next project or walking in the Kent countryside searching for our next local pub.

Joining the Space Between family is an exciting new frontier that I am looking forward to becoming fully immersed in. The team here have a great collective knowledge of all things commerce and I can’t wait to learn from them and hopefully contribute to the already great family dynamics.
