I’m Alex Holodak: a husband, father, identical twin, entrepreneur, and a technology fanatic. I was born and raised in Old Bridge, NJ. I’m passionate about politics, tech, music, and travel.
In 2007, my travels across Europe led me to meeting my wife and best friend, Amy. We’ve happily lived in South Korea, Seattle, Brooklyn, the Upper East Side of New York City, and now have settled in Scotch Plains, New Jersey.
I’m currently the Vice President of Operations at DGDean. At DGDean, we provide end-to-end technology and digital project management services to fast growing start-ups. My role focuses on development operations, security, industry compliance (HIPPA / PCI), and cloud architecture. Our services also include multi-channel development, analytics, and Artificial Intelligence (AI). To our clients, we are their technology department.
Thanks to a close partnership over the years with Loeb NYC, the premiere New York City start-up factory, we’ve grown to support various successful start-ups covering all business sectors. As an AWS Partner, we leverage the cloud to accomplish amazing results for our clients every day.
In my previous role, as the Global Digital Manager at the NeuroLeadership Institute (a neuroscience-based coaching consultancy), I managed digital systems in North America and Europe, client-facing digital products, and built and launched NLI’s new website. Formerly, I worked as a Paralegal Assistant in the Patent Group for Perkins Coie LLP in Seattle, Washington. Before moving to Seattle in 2010, I was a Legal Assistant in estate planning for the Patel Law Offices in Iselin, NJ. In addition, I worked as Lead Technician and Consultant for SW Unlimited, which specializes in technology needs for people with disabilities. Working with SW Unlimited, we supported the Veterans Administration, helping veterans utilize these vital technologies.
As an active participant in local civics, I ran for election to the Old Bridge Township Board of Education in April of 2006 at age 18. My platform focused on investing in green energy for our school district to reduce the budget.
My commitment to community service led me to New Orleans to aid in Katrina Relief efforts through NJPIRG and Americorps in 2007. In 2009 at Rutgers, I was elected President to the Rutgers University Democrats.
