About Alvin Alexander

Alvin J. Alexander started a small business in the basement of his house in the 1990s, grew it to a very profitable company of fifteen employees and five contractors, and sold his business a decade later. His book, How I Sold My Business: A Personal Diary, contains the story of how he sold his business.

Mr. Alexander was born in Chicago, Illinois, grew up in the small town of Lake Zurich, Illinois, and graduated from Texas A&M University with a B.S. degree in Aerospace Engineering. After working for military and NASA contractors, he moved to Louisville, Kentucky in 1993, and eventually founded his small computer software consulting firm there.
