Key Leadership AccomplishmentsAlejandro took on the CEO role of a nearly insolvent company in the healthcare services industry and led a series of restructuring/pivoting/rightsizing efforts and strategic changes that lifted the company out of the red in only nine months, reaching 14% net profit and propelling it to a record-breaking level of 20% profitability merely a year later, delivering the company’s two most lucrative years in history. He also increased gross revenues by 35% through improved cash collections, reducing DSO (Days Sales Outstanding) by over 50%, and by creating new and effective cross-selling/marketing processes. As interim CEO at a startup in the cannabis industry, he led the business plan, facility design, permitting, build out and operations of an industrial scale production facility, including a specialized laboratory, achieving cash-flow breakeven within nine months of operations—a record breaking achievement in that industry at that moment in time. He also led the development of a proprietary workflow portal for a consulting firm that enabled operators in client companies to seamlessly connect to two previously incompatible IT systems. This required a complex integration layer that, together with the workflow portal, became key IP assets for the consulting company, enabling the later sale of that branch and IP to a huge international conglomerate for more than 20 times value.
