Alex J. Farling


Alex Farling, Chief Customer Experience Officer, of Lifecycle Insights ran an MSP for 16.5 years. The sign above his desk read, "If you have to do it twice, automate it." That is what lead to the development of Lifecycle Insights - the automated QBR reporting and Risk Assessment platform. If Alex isn't Lifecycling, he can be found on a volleyball court or eating crabs by the pool with his fiancee and puppy.
