Alex Lieberman, CEO and Co-Founder of Morning Brew, a free daily business email newsletter, is responsible for managing overall operations and resources for the company. Prior to founding Morning Brew in 2015, Alex was an Agency MBS Trader at Morgan Stanley. He graduated from the University of Michigan with a bachelor’s degree in business administration, with intentions to follow his family’s career path in finance.
While at the University of Michigan, Alex ran a successful interview prep email service. Through this work, he realized his classmates – all aspiring business leaders – wanted a more engaging way to consume the news each day. This ultimately sparked his idea to launch Morning Brew.
Today, Morning Brew provides quick and digestible business news to more than one million readers, successfully changing the way young business professionals engage with the media.

“People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.”
