Alexander Bigbie, MA
Founder & EXecutive Director
Alexander Bigbie moved to New Orleans from London UK after 5 years of working with Barclays plc Corporate and Investment Bank.
He is the in-house lead finance consultant for Propeller Incubator, an accelerator for impact businesses in the city. During his free time he began helping staff with their financial literacy at Liberty's Kitchen, a NOLA based nonprofit. He soon realised the disastrous effects of poor financial literacy on businesses, families and individuals in the city and country as a whole.
He holds a Masters degree in English Literature and Modern History from the University of St Andrews and a Professional Certificate of Banking from the University of London.
Flyte hires coaches directly from the Liberty's Kitchen and Cafe Reconcile Alumni Programmes. We also hire individuals in the city who have shown exceptional performance at their college and a desire to make this city a better place. We are able to give hard working, enthusiastic young people in the city the chance to earn a healthy living wage and to learn skills that benefit themselves, their families and the city's communities. They are all put through a rigorous and thorough training programme and have the highest standards of professionalism. Each coach is paired with businesses according to expertise and availability.
