Announcing Our Newest Team Member
The Garland Chamber of Commerce staff is thrilled to announce the newest addition to the Chamber team, Alexander Helgar. Alexander joins us as our new Membership Development representative and will work to get new businesses involved with the Chamber and assist existing members in growing their businesses through the valuable resources offered by our organization.
Alexander earned a Bachelor's degree in Business Administration from Buskerud University College in Norway and a Master's Degree in Marketing with one year at Buskerud and Vestfold University College, as well as a year at Texas Tech University. He comes to us with two years of professional experience in product and account management with Canon Norway and Dahl Market Research. During his time with Canon, Alexander worked with small and medium-sized businesses to consult and offer product solutions that would help his clients achieve greater productivity while remaining cost effective and environmentally friendly. While with Dahl Market Research, Alexander produced market research reports for clients, and worked as a consultant for various sized businesses to specialize reports to their specific needs.
In his spare time, Alexander enjoys experiencing new foods and restaurants, traveling and reading, and he's a big sports fan. He also enjoys spending time exploring Texas with his new bride, Erin.
Alexander has lived in the Garland area for just a few short months, but brings a wealth of knowledge and excitement to the Chamber team as he looks forward to being part of making Garland even better, growing the economy and connecting companies to resources that will help to grow their business network.
We invite you to stop by the office any time or swing by an upcoming event to welcome Alexander to the team!
