Prior to joining Forth Ports,she worked in various roles with PricewaterhouseCoopers, including external audit and transaction services serving a wide variety of sectors including both the private and public sectors.

Outside of work, Alex enjoys setting a good example to her daughter by staying fit, going to the theatre with a particular passion for ballet and musicals as well as travelling and singing along with whatever music happens to be playing.
As a mother of a teenager, she can appreciate the difficulties that those that the Trust seeks to help are facing. Having participated in one of the Trust’s Sleep Outs herself with university friends back in December 1995, she was keen to get involved again and bring her years of commercial and financial experience and network to support the charity even more.
