MIKE TOBIA is able. Mike bears almost a decade of battlefield scars from brand management, product development, manufacturing, sports marketing, and electronic media.Mike and Chris are sworn blood brothers, so if you invite one of them to a party, they’ll both show up.
DAVE SWEENEY is able. His bona fides include 20 years of senior executive-level experience in corporate administration and human resources positions for Silicone Valley Tech heavy hitters.
ALEX stands for something. A devious do-gooder from the start, ALEX is an acronym for “Always Live Extraordinarily”. We believe that innovation with a conscience is an idea that people can get behind. By personifying ALEX, it becomes more then just a water bottle, it becomes a part of your family. It’s sustainable, charitable, and fashionable. ALEX is our chosen way and reminds us to challenge ourselves as we work to improve the small things that make up the whole. We know that our flagship product exemplifies that idea, and like the idea, ALEX is made to last forever.
Mission in a bottle: ALEX is dedicated to offering innovative and well-designed sustainable products that provide convenient alternatives to disposable plastic water bottles.
