A San Francisco native and Nuclear Operations Engineer with an MBA from INSEAD, Alejandro has lived, worked and launched companies in Japan, Europe and the U.S. Some of his startups have had phenomenal exits, some have been learning experiences, but all of them had a strong international/global component to them.

With experience in the utility, telecom, and the B2B SaaS industries, Alejandro has learnt the crucial importance of a great user experience for the success of any company, whether a startup or a fortune 100 firm. His current venture, Userlytics, founded in 2009, is one of the global leaders in remote user experience optimization.
