After college, Alfred was responsible for Northern New Mexico on behalf of President Barack Obama's 2008 campaign. From there, he joined the Treasury Department, where he and Clara's future CEO, Jeff Foster, worked together closely as members of the administration's Financial Crisis Response Team. While earning his MBA, Alfred also met Lukasz Strozek, Clara's co-founder. With Alfred’s encouragement, Lukasz and Jeff went into business together, and before long, Alfred joined them.
Alfred’s day starts at 8:30 AM. Alfred wears two hats—he leads both the Sales Team and the Recruiting Team. Alfred doesn’t worry about balancing industry and leisure—for him, fun and productivity aren’t mutually exclusive. Instead, the two are a part of everyday life working at Clara.
