Alex Anderson, B.B.A.'12
The Enterprising Entrepreneur
Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Elevated Business Advisors
Alex Anderson is all about breaking the mold. He did it in his job as senior sales consultant at Unum, when he earned the all-time sales record (twice) and held a career close ratio more than double the industry average. He decided to break the mold again in March 2018, quitting his job to start Elevated Business Advisors, a consulting firm specializing in the formulation and execution of organizational sales strategy.
Anderson combined his highly technical selling approach with breakthroughs gained from extensive research in behavioral science and cognitive psychology to develop a revolutionary new sales model, Technically Selling. Mere months after launching, Anderson now consults and trains companies ranging from local startups to global Fortune 100s. He also stresses the importance of work-life balance and aims to inspire others to get out and see the world, while being an advocate for helping those less fortunate.
