We already know he looks good in orange


About a year ago, Alex went to work, as an analyst, for a new hedge fund, Williams Financial Advisors. It was quite an adventure for him, and despite their best efforts, the economy got the best of them and WFA closed at the end of February. He has been on a job hunt ever since then. He has interviewed at many places and considered many possiblilties but as of today, he is officially a Home Depot employee. Beginning on Tuesday Alex will be a Senior Financial Analyst for Home Depot supporting the Home Services division. An added bonus is that HD corporate offices are just 15 minutes from our house!
Alex is very smart and a hard worker and I know he'll be a great asset to HD. We are very proud of him!

That's awesome! My brother works for Home Depot and loves it- he has moved up the ranks VERY quickly! They seem to be great at rewarding hard work, so your husband should do great!

Congrats Alex!

I'd say "Go, Big Orange!" but that's Univ of TN not Auburn.

Now if you can just get him to bring home those cute little orange Home Depot aprons for the kids.
