Our Team

Alex Serious
Alex Derr, B.A.
Marketing & Communications Manager

Alex joined VNL in 2017, originally supporting our events. He now helps manages our communications and marketing strategy and content development work. Alex creates blogs, infographics, reports, and other content while managing our web and social media presence. He also runs our email marketing campaigns, tracks analytics, and conducts market research to drive our strategy. He supports our entire team with copywriting, graphic design and research, and helps with events, webinars, demos, and other online learning. He’ll graduate from CU-Denver’s School of Public Affairs this fall with a Master’s in Public Administration. Away from work and school, Alex spends his days climbing 14ers (24 done, 34 to go!), visiting Breweries (My favorite is Ratio), and spending time with his boyfriend Jake.
