Alex Hoffmann has been a classical music enthusiast since his childhood in
Belgium. His senior executive career in financial technology gave him the
opportunity to study, live, and work in Brussels, Palo Alto, Luxembourg,
Paris, Dallas, and finally Naples, where Alex has resided with his family
since 2018. After starting his career with McKinsey & Company, Alex joined
PayPal as one of the first employees of its European bank. He
subsequently held executive positions at MoneyGram International and ACI
Worldwide, before joining Versapay, a private equity-backed B2B accounts
receivable automation and payments scale-up.
Alex learned music theory during his engineering and economics studies at
the University of Louvain, followed by an MBA from the Stanford Graduate
School of Business. He was the Secretary of Les Jeunes Amis de l’Opéra,
a non-profit fostering the participation of students and young adults at the
La Monnaie Brussels Opera. His four children have absorbed his love for
music and have all become instrumentalists. Appearing as an extra on
stage in Carmen with his daughter singing in the chorus was the highlight
of his musical engagement.
Alex has been an active patron of Grand Piano Series since 2019. He is
looking forward to deepening his involvement with the program, acting as
an ambassador for the institution and providing a fresh perspective on
programming and community engagement opportunities.
