Who? Alexandra “Alex” Grin
Position at FourVision? Managing consultant Phenom People based in Newcastle, UK
Alex was born in Poland, where her family still lives. At a young age her parents enrolled her into a private British school to learn English.
She moved to the UK after being accepted at Northumbia University, Newcastle Business School for Leadership & Business Management. A degree that would give her a solid foundation to pursue her career.
Alex fell in love with the north of the UK as she is an outdoor enthusiast keen on hiking, biking, kayaking, and trekking. Something she does regularly in the Lake District National Park or the Scottish Highlands together with her husband.
Besides being outdoors, Alex absolutely loves traveling to quiet places. Her favorite place in the world so far is Arizona, USA. The combination of burning heat, dusty sand and red rocks, which can be seen throughout the state of Arizona, is what draws her in.
Straight after graduating, Alex landed her first job (quite by chance) in recruitment. She spent a few years in various roles before moving to the IT sector. She started and managed her own recruitment company for 9 years for which she traveled across Europe to visit her customers.
In 2014, she was offered an opportunity as an in-house recruiter at Oracle which started her journey in ERP world. As her network steadily grew, so did her opportunities, and it was not long before Alex was offered an opportunity to join Microsoft. She spent a fantastic three and a half years building Microsoft Dynamics practice in the EMEA region, now commonly known as Business Applications Global Domain. From there she moved to Microsoft’s biggest partner Avanade to recruit for the Global Market Unit team in the Business Applications area.
After spending the past 12 years recruiting for the three biggest technology vendors in the world, she decided it was time to pursue her own dreams. Now was her time to follow her passion and be a part of HR digital transformation. So, when FourVision owners Bert and Peter approached her with the option to become the Managing Consultant for Phenom People, she knew it was the perfect match.
