Partner | CEO
Why hello, I’m Alex. Alex Hemker, if you will. Originally, I’m from Kalamazoo, Michigan, but like any midwesterner, decided that Colorado was the place for me. I attended the University of Denver, focusing my degree on business management and statistics and started my career in business development for the DOD and Fortune 50, heavily influenced by tech. During my tenure, I found myself heavily engaged by digital marketing and how it can transform businesses exponentially. Following, I met my business partner Robert Lane and together we co-founded Buhv and the rest, as they say, is history.
While my initial focus during Buhv’s conception was business development, as the company has grown, my role has transitioned to operations, growth-management, and the management of it’s great people! Within the business community, I’m a member of and heavily involved with an organization called EO (Entrepreneurs Organization), which has helped transform how I percieve my business and leadership style. Lastly, I’m very proud to acknowledge that within just a few years, we’ve managed to represent 300 businesses, won several awards, landed 50 startups to watch etc., but certainly not by one person’s effort. This statement is geared towards the team that make everything come to life!
My personal life has also shifted to my one-year-old daughter and lovely wife Pamela. I enjoy golfing (sometimes too much), competition, outdoors anything, and the occasional video game (a habit I will hopefully never break).
